Hi all, two friends and I are flying into Dili early August for a week.
Like most people to visit East Timor, its the diving that attracted us there, plus the relatively remote and unvisited nature of the new country. It is precisely the second reason that we find a little challenging especially when it come to transport for foreign travellers.
We have found sporadic info on travel connections between the eastern and western parts of the country but how to proceed from there is still a question mark.
In the 7 days there, we're planning to take in Jaco Island, Atauro Island and climb Mt Ramelau. Is taking public transport the best option or will it be more feasible and much easier to rent a car? Is it safe to drive in the country and are scooters recommended for non-license holders?
Thanks in advance for your comments :)
