Plan Your Trip to Timor-Leste: Best of Timor-Leste Tourism

By shristi k


Within South-East Asia, Timor-Leste (East Timor) lies 400km north of Australia, and in the Lesser Sunda Islands at the eastern end of the Indonesian archipelago. Timorese cultural heritage is multi-layered – a fascinating combination of traditional Timorese, Portuguese, Chinese and Indonesian influences. This permeates their local architecture, cuisine, clothing styles and artistic endeavours. Timor-Leste’s fringing reefs are pristine and have extraordinary diversity. They lie within the Coral Triangle, which is recognised as the global epicentre of marine biodiversity as it has the highest coral diversity in the world, with 76% of the world’s 805 coral species found there.
