Bali’s ‘New Year’ is quite different from that of a Western or even of Chinese culture; rather than a day of celebration, parties, meeting family and feasting, Bali’s new year’s day is quite opposite. That’s right, Hari Raya Nyepi is a full-day of silence; 24 hours in which the island’s inhabitants must stay indoors for meditation, introspection and for some, fasting.
