Timor-Leste has 13 administrative divisions or districts: Bobonaro, Liquiçá, Díli,Baucau, Manatuto and Lautém on the north coast; Cova-Lima, Ainaro, Manufahi and Viqueque, on the south coast; Ermera and Aileu, the two landlocked districts; and Oecussi-Ambeno, the enclave in Indonesian territory. The borders of the 13 districts have been more or less the same since the last years of Portuguese administration. Each district comprises a capital city and various subdistricts whose number can vary between three and seven.
