It’s worth a trip to experience the Balinese New Year, which is marked by the day of silence called Nyepi. On this day, the entire island comes to a standstill; there are no incoming or outgoing flights, shops are closed, and hotels are asked to cover their windows. For the Balinese, it’s a day of introspection, a refreshingly pure way of ushering in the new year. For tourists, it’s an opportunity to relax and unwind in an utterly tranquil environment. Many resorts and villas also offer perks and discounts for Nyepi.
