About Same

The sub-district of Same, which is part of the District of Manufahi, is situated in the south of East Timor, on the southern side of the central mountain range, towards the border with West Timor. It extends from Kablaki Mountain and its foothills (where the town of Same is located), sloping down to Betano on the southern coastal plains bordering the Timor Sea.

Although Same is located just 30 minutes by air from Dili, the journey by road is by four-wheel drive vehicle and takes almost five hours!
