Voice of Travelers to East Timor

Great Time in East Timor

We flew to East Timor from Auckland Airport with a ticket on Air New Zealand. The flight to East Timor took three hours. The transport to the hotel in East Timor was included in the price of the ticket. We booked the ticket at a local travel agency offering deals to visit East Timor. The service was great. Travelling on the flight and in East Timor was a pleasure. The highlight of our trip was our stay at a luxury hotel, located not very far from East Timor's capital. The beaches we visited were clean and so relaxing. We actually stayed in East Timor for a week longer than expect and so we ended up changing out return flight ticket to a later date.

Cheap Ticket to East Timor. Also booked a ticket for a helicopter tour

As a single lady living in Hong Kong, I always look out for holiday deals and reasonable flight tickets to travel around Asia. This time I found a really cheap ticket to East Timor, so I booked it. The flight to East Timor was direct and the service on board China Airways was great. I booked my ticket online and it was a first-class ticket. Once I landed in East Timor, I decided to book a helicopter tour to see East Timor from the air. This was by far the most amazing experience I had in East Timor. The tour ticket was expensive, however, I booked it since I had saved money to purchase this ticket. I have to say that East Timor is truly a wonderful place to visit.
