Make it 8 long weekends in 2020 by taking 8 leave days

The Chinese New Year holidays (25 & 26 Jan) will be smacked on Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy an extra day off on Monday and maximise this stretch by taking leave strategically on Friday to enjoy a four-day weekend.

May seems like the perfect time to travel with three different public holidays all happening throughout the month – Labour Day, Vesak Day and Hari Raya Puasa. Three out of the four weekends in the month can be long weekends!

Hari Raya Haji and National Day follow suit, giving you respite in the months of July and August before you prepare for the year-end. Since Christmas Day falls on a Friday, that’s another extra long weekend for you before 2020 wraps up.

Before you rush off to get those leave days approved well ahead of your colleagues, bookmark this page and download the calendar for future references.
