Hi there Thorntrees,
I'm about to head to East Timor for a month and have read that I'll need proof of 'onward travel' to be able to get the visa on arrival (I'm Australian). Many countries seem to say this but few in my experience actually enforce this rule. Does East Timor? At this stage I'm not sure whether I'll fly out or leave via West Timor, so I'm reluctant to buy an onward ticket -- but obviously will if I have to.
Hi, has anyone had troubles flying with Sriwijaya Air from Dili to Denpasar? I have heard that sometimes pilots don't even turn up and you can be left waiting for 2 days to fly! That's not specifically with Sriwijaya Air but with any airline going from Dili to Indonesia. It looks like there is only 1 reasonable flight option which leaves at 13:30 and arriving at 2:15pm in Denpasar (which I imagine is the standard flight time each day) for approx $160 AUD (I missed the 'promo' fare). If anyone…
I'm going to be coming from West Timor into East Timor soon, and I would like to visit Balibo before heading on to Dili. I will probably spend my last night in West Timor in Atambua, and try and get to the border as early as possible (does anyone know when it opens?).
So, my questions...
Is there much/any transport from Batugade to Balibo? The LP suggests it's only 14km, meaning a rather reasonable walk, if all else fails.
What is there to see in Balibo, and how much time would I need to…
I'm wondering if there are folks who might know about making a trip from Dili to Betano and South Coast by bus? Maybe from Timor Travel?
Also, would anyone be interested in visiting the south coast next month?
In a couple of months I am going to travel from Australia to Bali. I have seen the air fares (+700$) and was wondering if it could be done over land and then also get to visit East Timor. It seems as if ferries aren't the most abundant transportation around those regions, so if anyone have tried to travel the route or just some of it, it would be a great help to hear if it is possible and get some advise.
I am soccer nerd, travelling to several countrys to watch local football. Can anyone help with games in Timor Leste? I will be in the area between May 28th and Juni 17th. Thank you for helping!
I plan to travel to East Timor, however I still dont know the itinerary yet, been browsing and googling for awhile, but not so much clue, anyway I'm planning for motorbike trip, will enter East Timor through West Timor Indonesia, I'm Indonesian, so visa wont be a problem, and I'm planning to travel prior to Idul Fitri Day for a month trip. I'm interesting in Nature Reserve (Mountaint, Marine, Islands etc), Historical Building, Old Village, Traditional Market/Flea Market. So anyone…
I'd love to get some recommends for a month long itinerary for East Timor. I'll be heading there in September and I'm open to pretty much anything!
Also, I'm on a backpacker budget, so any thoughts on what a monthly budget would look like?
Do you know is the best way to get from Kupang to Dili by land? I have read about 12h buses.
Is it safe journey? Do you know any operators you could recommend?
