The Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste, commonly known as East Timor, is a country located at the transition area between Southeast Asia and Oceania. It lies northwest of Australia in the Lesser Sunda Islands at the eastern end of the Indonesian archipelago.
This charming, lazy little seaside city suddenly found itself taking the role of national capital when East Timor became the world's newest independent country in May 2002.
The North Coast of East Timor is the main destination for tourists who visit this small Asian nation.
Timor-Leste has some of the best dive sites in the world due to its location, warm waters, minimalist tourist trade and lack of commercial fishing or heavy industry.
The South Coast of East Timor is the more laid back area of the country.
