Tais Market, Dili


The markets in the capital Dili are a good place to meet the people, who are exceptionally friendly despite the trauma of the 25-year occupation by Indonesia. The fresh market gives a good insight into daily life, while the Tais market offers local crafts, particularly the traditional Tais cloth. Tais weaving is done solely by women, who pass the method down through the generations and use the cloth in religious ceremonies.
