Bus

Dili’s bus terminals (really little more than shabby shelters) are served by taxis and mikrolet. Buses run most often in the morning.

Tasitolu Terminal, west of the airport, is the hub for destinations to the west of the country. Travelling to the east (Baucau, Lospalos, Viqueque etc), buses go from the simple Bidau Terminal, on the waterfront near the Hotel Turismo. The Taibessi Terminal, at the huge Taibessi market, is the stop for transport to Maubisse and beyond.
