Bali, Indonesia is known for its vivid sights and lively, zesty beach vibes buzzing with life but on 17 and 18 March 2018 this year, the island went into a standstill for 24 hours to celebrate the Balinese Day of Silence, Nyepi Day.
While travellers were prohibited to leave the hotel premises, Wyndham Hotel Group provided a host of leisure activities for travellers to unwind and experience the esteemed occasion of peace and tranquillity.
