Main street and market of Maliana

The third-largest city in Timor-Leste, Maliana has the air of a dusty wild west town. There’s not much in the town itself, but it is surrounded by interesting landscapes and can make a good stopover or base for day trips.

About 3.5 hours from Dili on the main highway heading west past Dili airport. Just remember to turn right at the Tibar T-junction to go through Liquica, Maubara, Batugade and Balibo. This is somewhat of a historic route, with possible stops at the prison ruins before Liquica, the fort at Maubara and the house at Balibo with an exhibition on the murdered Australian journalists, as well as another ruined fort. If you have time, go straight at the T-junction for a challenging, but scenic 8-hour trip through Gleno, Ermera and eventually to Maliana.
