Bali goes offline for 24 hours to celebrate the Hindu New Year

If you’ve been dreaming of disconnecting and ridding your day of digital distractions, there’s an island destination that would love to have you this weekend.

Tonight, in one of world’s most connected nations, internet services go dark for 24 hours to mark the Indonesian island’s annual day of silence. Called Nyepi, this Balinese New Year’s celebration is unlike anywhere else on the planet: Nyepi will see Bali with no internet access to undergo a digital cleansing to quietly reflect on, and be thankful for the past year.

With more than 132 million internet users, Indonesia is one of the countries with the highest number of internet users in the world. And that’s something to be thankful for.
