There are four holidays which fall on either a Monday or Friday, they are:

1. New Year's Day (Mon, Jan 1)

2. Chinese New Year (Fri, Feb 16)

3. Good Friday (Fri, March 30)

4. Hari Raya Puasa (Fri, June 15)

However, five holidays fall on either a Tuesday or Thursday, meaning you could utilise five days' of leave to get five more long weekends. Yay!

According to our survey, the top destinations for AsiaOne readers during long weekends are Bangkok and Malacca. What are yours? Tell us here.
