Sa’e Bua – Betel Nut Festival in Atauro
|

Every year in the month of July, people from five villages on the island of Atauro gather for a one-day betel nut harvest festival. At the heart of the event is a traditional ceremony to reaffirm peaceful relations between communities. The betel nut harvesters are extremely skilled: the areca palms are very tall and sway perilously in the wind. Once the crop has been brought down, the crowd samples the nuts and celebrates late into the night. Tourists are welcome.

Considerations for marketing Timor-Leste as a tourist destination

Considerations for marketing Timor-Leste as a tourist destination
|

This paper has discussed the four core destination attributes of Timor-Leste and the implications for promoting these assets for tourism. While each attribute provides an important angle for tourism marketing, the risks and implications of each must be considered alongside the advantages. The paper has argued that Timor-Leste’s image is negatively impacted by past violence and that its true situation, as a beautiful and peaceful nation, is still little known.

Understanding Timor-Leste 2013
Two journeys in Indonesian-occupied Timor-Leste, 1991 and 1997 |

Following the 1975 Indonesian invasion and occupation of Timor-Leste, foreign travellers were barred entry. Little news was then heard from Timor-Leste until the beginning of 1989, when Indonesia re-opened Timor-Leste to foreign visitors, hoping to show the world that there was no local opposition to their rule. What non-Timorese knew of conditions in Timor-Leste during the remainder of the Indonesian occupation came mainly from the observations of political activists and journalists, who had usually travelled to the country specifically for that purpose.
