We’re heading out on the town! This Dili night tour hits up locals’ favourite places after dark, and we’re taking you along for a night to remember!
Once you’ve been picked up from your hotel, we’ll travel along the waterfront — commonly known as Embassy Row due to the 15 foreign embassies located in this area — until we reach the Dili night market. This is where the locals flock every night, and we’re joining them for a local experience!
Your guides will set up tables and chairs on the beach, amid all the local families gathering for an evening meal. Watch the children building sandcastles and swimming in the shallows, and smell the delicious array of local food being prepared on the grills lining the beach.
Barbecue delicacies are seasonal, so the menu’s always changing, but you can often find dishes featuring fish, squid, octopus, chicken, beef, corn, and katupa (rice cooked in a palm leaf basket). We’ll dig into a tasty dinner starring these local treats, as we watch the sun go down from the beach. Soft drinks and water are served with the meal, and ice-cold Bintang beer is available to purchase. (And don’t worry if you’re vegetarian — we can cater for your tastes so long as we have advance notice. Please notify us in the “Additional request” box at checkout when you book your tour.)
After dinner, we’ll head to a local live music venue, where you can sit back and enjoying a view across the bay or dance the night away. Grab a beer or cocktail (not included), and enjoy the live music being performed by talented Timor-Leste musicians.
Once the night has come to a close, we’ll drop you off at your hotel.
