This year, Bali’s Nyepi (Day of Silence) falls on Saturday 21 March. Nyepi is a public holiday in Indonesia, and in Bali the entire island shuts down for 24 hours.
From 6 am until 6 am the following day, no-one is allowed outside of their homes, there are no cars or bikes on the roads and even the airport is closed.
The day before Nyepi, the main street of villages are closed and parades are held. Statues made of bamboo and paper known as ogoh-ogoh are carried through the village and then later burned.
For this reason, Kura-Kura Bus will not be operating on 20 & 21 March 2015. All services will resume as normal on 22 March.
