Click here for more info........
Nyepi day is a very special day in Bali. Nyepi is the Balinese New Year and the date is determined using the Lunar Caka calendar. The night of the first new moon between March and April will be the eve of Nyepi. Legend has it that on this day, Yama, the lord of evil, opens his gates and all evil deities descend upon the island. A lot of ceremonies start on this day. Some people told me it is to scare away the bad spirits.
Whatever you have been told, the eve of Nyepi will be a spectacular procedure of carrying some great paper mache and bamboo monsters (the bad spirits will take possession of the monsters for one evening). Later there will be fireworks and all the streets will be closed for these monster parades, the balinese call them Ogoh Ogoh, they take over the island for one night.
If you are here on holiday you will have to be careful and please try to respect the balinese customs on these special two days.
The eve of Nyepi starts almost everywhere in Bali around lunchtime. A lot of streets, even main streets like the bypass will be closed later in the afternoon. So if you would like to see some parades be aware that you might not be able to make your way back in a taxi or on a motor bike, as the parades move on, the traffic will be shut down in all areas. The balinese will be carrying the monsters through the streets and turn them around (so the monster looses orientation and cannot find the way home) and then they will burn them.

We are all extremely
proud that Bidadari Private Villas & Retreat-Ubud receives so many "Excellents" on
Tripadvisor, our sole purpose is to render everyone's stay an amazing
(May 2013) "WORLD CLASS PROPERTY" What more can you say about Bidadari ? the magnificent location, high quality spa, friendly and attentive staff, luxurious private villas, incredible food ? this amazing property speaks for itself! Rana and his staff should be suitably proud of achieving the number one spot on Trip Advisor, a rating which is totally deserved. The property is in a secluded and serene location amongst rice terraces and jungle but still only a pleasant 25-30 min walk into the town centre, a great opportunity for some amazing photos and then the luxury of a courtesy car for your return trip. Special mention to staff members Dodik and to the ever smiling Arik (and his exceptional cocktails!), plus the young trainee, who made our recent stay in Villa Pucuk at Bidadari one of the most memorable of our many travel experiences worldwide. If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit this remarkable property do not miss out, as many have said before us we can honestly say the only bad thing about Bidadari is having to leave!
