*This is the Balinese Day of Silence. On March 6 everything shuts down by midday so it is important to get money and essential items for that evening and the following day. That night the streets come alive with celebrations and locals carry large ogoh-ogoh statues down to the beach. It is a great tradition to experience.

The actual day of silence begins at 6am on March 7 and finishes 24 hours later at 6am March 8. During this time, you are not permitted to leave the villa and are asked to keep noise to a minimum.  There is no check-in or check-out. IMPORTANTLY, THERE ARE NO FLIGHTS IN OR OUT OF BALI DURING THIS TIME.
