Uniquely Timor-Leste

Two main things you must bring home are coffee and ‘tais’ (traditional hand-woven clothes), which can be found at local markets or roadside stalls.

The coffee of Timor-Leste is dark and excellent and can be found at reasonable prices in any convenience store or some roadside stalls.

Tais are particularly special as the design varies from region to region and an expert can even tell which family they are made from. In Dili, the best place to find tais is the tais market, where you also can buy local silver jewellery.
