The Roads Less Travelled

Public Reminded that Permits to Travel Roads on Bali During 24-Hour Nyepi Period March 31, 2014 Strictly Limited to Emergency Transport to Local Hospitals

(3/23/2014) All the relevant departments of government in Bali are unanimous in their decision not to issue special dispensations to vehicles to travel the roads of Bali during the 24-hours of absolute silence on Hari Raya Nyepi beginning from sunrise on March 31, 2014 until sunrise the following morning.

The only valid permits to travel the roads on Hari Suci Nyepi Tahun Baru Saka 1936 will be those issued by the chiefs of traditional villages for local residents needing to travel to a hospital on a medical emergency.

As reported by Suara Pembaruan, the agreement to respect the pact of silence on Nyepi was confirmed by the provincial spokesman for Bali, I Ketut Teneng, on Saturday, March 22, 2014

Teneng reminded all businesses that must remain in operation on Nyepi Day, such as hotels, hospitals and public utilities, to prepare to accommodate their staff at the place of employment over the 24-hour period as trips back and forth from their place of employment to their private residence will not be possible.
