Who would have guessed I would be visiting my second giant Jesus statue? This one is not as big as the one in Rio and you have to get to the top under your own steam (500 steps up, in the morning heat, phew!) but it's still pretty impressive. There are stations of the cross to pass on the way up and the view is lovely - beautiful beaches with nobody on them, clear waters, ships in the harbour. Unfortunately both sets of toilets on the way up were locked due to a pump problem, but apparently it is being worked on.

Cristo Rei , is a beautiful place to look across the Bay of Dili and along the east coast. Great for sunrises and also for sunsets.
The stairs have the ability to keep you fit as well.

If you go to Dili you MUST climb the 500 or so steps leading up to the statue. View of the beach below are amazing. Good restaurants are on the way too, and lovely sandy beaches so you can make a day of it.
