Nyepi or known as Day of Silence which marks Balinese New Year. It is celebrate every Isakawarsa or Saka new year. The island would fall silent for 24 hours every year. There will be no flights, activites, fire nor electricity. The Balinese honor the new year with stillness and silent.
They believed by doing it so, it would avoid from harm when demons and gods fly overhead due to they think that it is uninhabited.
However, as outdoor activities and other activities related to cook are limited, you can do below activities while you are stay at your Villa. Here’s we curate some of activities to do if you happen in Bali during Nyepi:
