A Complete Guide to Travelling to Bali in March!

Coming to the matter of travelling to Bali in the month of March, it may not be regarded as the best decision undertaken by someone because of its present era problem of having long prevalence of rainy season, which mostly extends upto this month. But never mind, the month of March can never be fully discarded as an option to travel also.

The tourism industry starts picking up its momentum and gets accelerated greatly for undertaking necessary preparations for the coming peak times of tourists in the days of April, May and so on. March here is a climatic transitional month where the worst an individual can experience is having only a few hours of heavy torrential downpour but after all, not getting stuck up with extended periods of heavy rain. The fact that March is the shoulder season in Bali means that flights and acommodation should be much cheaper than usual, so be on the lookout for attractive deals that will save you some money!

Major Festivals –

1) Nyepi (Balinese New Year)

Estimated dates – 25th to 26th March

This widely renowned Hindu festival is also regarded as the “Day of Silence.” It marks the end of the old year and the beginning of the new one. The most amazing feature of the festival is that this red letter day is celebrated by inactivity and maintaining complete silence for the whole day. For the original inhabitants of Bali, this day is the day for introspection and meditation. But for foreigners, the rules of the custom are much relaxed. Without any doubt, it is sure that for a traveller, it will certainly feel great because just on the previous night there exists different colourful and cheerful celebrations whereas the next day observes a period of complete serenity and silence. This extreme level of contrast feels eerie and thrilling at the same time and also, sometimes it appears really good to “do nothing” a whole day because after all, holidays are meant for relaxation also.

 2) Ogoh Ogoh Parade

Estimated dates – 24th March

The Ogoh Ogoh parade is the eventual glimpse of glittering Bali ritual and festival just before the island observes a complete day of silence at the Nyepi (the day of silence). During the parade, celebrations are carried out with large and shining torches and drums. Varied numbers of giant monster dolls are the main attraction of this parade which represent mythological demons that are incinerated at the end of the parade to mark the destruction of evil and eventually the triumph of the good.

These two being the main attractions of Bali in March, other significant festivals include “Melasti – The cleansing pilgrimage” taking place on 25th March in the coasts of Kuta and Sanur and “Tumpek Kandang – The Animal Festival” taking place on 16th March which encourages the preserving and prospering of the environment, especially animals.

The month of March is regarded as the “shoulder season” for the tourists, which means that it is a transitional phase between the previous heavy rains and upcoming peak-season of summer. Therefore, the pressure of tourists during this time remains tolerable making the pristine nature of Bali more attractive and appreciable and thus making it a great choice of vacation once and for all.
