Nice place. Lovely handmade stuff. Not cheap nor pricey. Can get souvenir. All in USD. Closer to Plaza hotel (2km)

These shopkeepers are super polite. Not in the least pushy. They don't like to bargain but will budge a little. We went there on New Years Day and a few shops were open. Nice East Timorese artifacts.

This is a pleasant, hassle-free market. If you really want a souvenir of East Timor, this is the place to go.

There are not really that many interesting sights to see in Dili. Among those that the most worthwhile one is Cristo Rei on the top of a hill for its view of the whole Dili area; the other is Resistance Museum (maybe the only museum?)...More

If you've visited countless markets in SE Asia (as we have) this one felt not even worth the visit and did not offer anything unique worth checking out. It was relatively small with repetitive stalls selling many woven products. For souvenirs and gifts though from...More

the market is quite small. I visited it two times and bought a t-shirt after good barganing. The market does not have the atmosphere that you expect from asian market mainly due lack of visitors.

It is a little market, felt empty and a little sad when I was there on a Saturday afternoon. The people here are humble and shy. No one bothers you as you look around, which was a welcome relief after all the hawkers in Bali....More

A bit mind boggling array of Tais. The must have souvenir from Timor. Everything is hand made. Lots of other handicrafts on sale. Don't forget to bargain for a good price.

The crafts in Timor-Leste are different to those you will get elsewhere in Asia. The qualty is very good and prices are reasonable. The woven goods are of very high quality and have interesting patterns and colours

We enjoyed looking around this little market, and bought several items for a reasonable cost. The next day we visited a place where there were ladies making the tais, and we found the prices there to be more expensive than at this market.

Quite close. A reasonable taxi fare is 2-3 dollars or use one of the blue cabs which have meters. If you have a map and you are actually in the Port (not being tendered on and off the boat) it's 10 minutes walk . Currency is... More
