JIMBARAN, Bali (BPN) – The auspicious Balinese New Year called Nyepi Day is fast approaching. Experience the undeniably magical Balinese Nyepi Day or the day of silence at the iconic beachfront InterContinental® Bali Resort, as the way in which this unique day is celebrated, is something that you will never experience anywhere else in any part of the world.
Nyepi Day marks the Balinese Saka New Year that falls on Sunday, 14th March 2021, and this is the day when the entire island retreats into silence and shut down for a 24-hour.
Throughout Nyepi Day, the Balinese Hindus are not allowed to cook, work yet travel. The airport will operationally be closed which no flights in or out of Bali, shops will remain closed, all streets will be deserted and there will no lights, as it will be switched off even after the sun has set.
For the Balinese, the purpose of the day is to teach control of excess, the idea being to spend the day in quiet contemplation and meditation. Any demons and evils spirits will be deluded into thinking that Bali is deserted, prompting them to leave the island.
If you embrace the experience, you will discover that this unique and wonderful day is pure joy. All you will hear is the sound of birds.
