It’s a delectable article on the exploring of Maubisse, Baucau, the islands of Com and Jaco and Atauro – some of the most attractive places in Timor Leste. Having enjoyed the Timorese hospitality during the trip, the author concludes that although the country is small, the range and variety of opportunities for visitors to discover is unbelievable.
This article is indeed inspiring. It has really made me want to go to Timor Leste right away. Do you know if the tourists meet any difficulties during their trips there, due to the instability of the political situation?
Hi i read a comment on here the other day. I'm only new to this, so sorry if i've done it wrong. The languages spoken over in Timor Leste. That comment is wrong due to the fact that tetum is the traditional language of areas such as Dili and surrounding areas of east timor, but there are thousands of dilelcts depending of which village they are from. My father is from Baucau their traditional language is Waima'a. Tetum was originally spoken on the south coast of Timor and a form of Tetum was brought to Dili by the Portuguese in the late 18th Century. Although Portuguese was nomiated as east Timors offical language after gained independence, Tetum became the National language with the intention of making it co-offical with Portuguese. The most widely spoken Tetum is Tetum-Dili or Tetum-Prasa. Tetum is a mixture of the original tetum language, indonesian and portuguese language. This mixture langauges occurred during the colonialisation from the portuguese.
