On Nyepi Day, the entire island is calm and silent. Balinese Hindus believe in a ritual where there are four prohibitions namely - no travel, no entertainment, no fire and no activity. At night, no lights are turned on and it's like completely going into the reboot mode with Mother Nature.
As a guest in hotels, you're expected to be confined within the hotel premises. However, all the hotel amenities can be enjoyed as usual.
A lot of travellers prefer giving these dates a miss while planning a trip to Bali because of travel restrictions. However, in my opinion, Nyepi celebrations must be experienced once in your lifetime to feel and breathe the authenticity of traditions that this unique celebration of Bali has to offer!
