All access to Bali to close on March 30

JAKARTA (Antara, March 24, 2006): The Bali administration will close all
access to the island March 30 when Hindus -- the majority of Bali's
population --
mark the annual Day of Silence, an official said.

"Tourists are not allowed to enter Bali during the Day of Silence to allow
Hindu followers to pray solemnly," said provincial administration spokesman I
Gusti Agung Mayun in Denpasar.

During the Day of Silence, Hindus on the island are not allowed to make
trips, work, light lamps, cook or do any other activities.

The Day of Silence will take place from 6 a.m on March 30 to 6 a.m. on March
31.

Mayun said all accesses to Bali, including Ngurah Rai International Airport
and all seaports, would be closed March 30.

The Day of Silence will welcome the year 1928 on the Saka calender of the
Balinese Hindus.
