For the Balinese, Nyepi marks the New Year and a day to cleanse and renew one’s soul. The island shuts down for 24 hours of silence (even the airport), which means no traveling, transport, or work. Houses must turn their lights off while keeping any sound to a minimum.
Some even like to call it “playing dead” as the real philosophy behind it is to fool the evil spirits into thinking that the island is empty, so they will depart. As for nature, Nyepi feels like, giving the island its well-deserved break.
This year, Nyepi will fall on March 22nd, and if staying at home is not an option, we’ve rounded up the best places to stay across Bali. Have a peaceful stay.
