About Timor-Leste

Timor-Leste, or East Timor has some incredible coral reefs just teeming with marine life. This country is still very under-developed due to the country’s struggle for independence from Portugal in 1975 and then Indonesia in 2002. East Timor still receives very little tourism due to lack of infrastructure and the expensive costs to a visitor. Accommodation and transport to get around here don’t come cheap…yet. For those travellers who do take a chance on visiting Timor, you’ll find the people friendly, the food tasty and the road rugged, yet worth it.
