Lembar port to be closed for Hindu Day of Silence
The Jakarta Post
Lembar port in West Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, which links Lombok and Bali islands will be closed on Tuesday in observance of the Hindu Day of Silence, locally known as Nyepi.
The port usually connects with Bali’s Padangbai Port to transport people between the two islands.
“To observe Nyepi, Lembar will be closed from 6 a.m. local time until Wednesday,” said port manager Muhammad Yasin on Monday.

Transportation between Lembar-Padangbai will be back to normal on Wednesday morning. There are usually around 24 ferry services along the route every day. (wit)
