One of the top sights in the capital. When the weather is fine, walking from the city center to the statue can be rewarding. From the top, where the statue stands, you will have magnificient views across Dili and the sandy beaches (Areia Branca and...More

An easy, but humid walk, about 1hr return from Beachside Hotel. It looked like they were reconstructing the pathway, but heaps of people go there and excercise. You will see lots of young local couples together, escaping their parents, lots of expat joggers and some...More

Take the time in Dili to visit Jesus. It's a fifteen minute climb up from the beach and the view is great, especially at dawn as the moon sets.

Beautiful spot and a good hike up the hill for a spectacular view. Finish off with a swim or a snorkel at "white beach".

A must visit in dili. Not well maintained but have seen a group of young ones cleaning the steps on a Sunday morning led by an adult. Good view from the top.

This site is a steady climb up and a good way to start your cultural acclimatisation. The way to Christ's statue is strewn with rubbish but the climb is worth it and our group had lots of laughs getting a decent selfie.

Decided to have a look. 10am was getting hot. Decided to use a blue taxi. Had the car wait and then take us to Timor Plaza. Pleasant drive there. Good exercise and few people there. Hot and humid. View was quite nice.
