Bali observes ‘Day of Silence’ with complete fervor!

Published on : Tuesday, March 28, 2017

BaliBali tourism observes ‘Day of Silence’ every year on March 28th. This time is also called time for self reflection. During this time of the year, Indonesian’s follow an absolute absence of entertainment, work and travel from their lives. To add more to it, flights are not allowed in or out during this time of the year with limited electricity usage and transport on streets. Indovision even ceases their broadcasting on that day.

 
Hotel guests get confined in their hotel rooms. Special arrangements are made with limited number of staffs to continue providing services to the occupancies. In 2015, Bali received four million visitors on that particular day as per Bali Provincial Tourism Service.

 

Just a decade back, that particular day received only 1.4 million tourists, a stark increase in comparison to 2015. Many travel agencies avoid bookings during this time. However, there are few visitors who consider this day to be unique and prefer to explore Bali this time of the year. To quote Dendy Kurniawan, AirAsia Group CEO, ‘It’s one of the many elements that actually makes Bali an even more unique tourism spot, which holds special meaning to visitors as well as residents. It is how culture and religious practice have been preserved through times, whilst blended perfectly with the touch of modern world.”
