May is nearly coming to an end! If you still have annual leaves to use up or need a long break, here are the dates you can plan around for a long weekend off:

Wesak Day 22 May

Wesak falls on a Wednesday which means you can have a 5-Day break! That is if you take leave on Thursday (23 May) and Friday (24 May).

Agong’s birthday – 3 June

Factor in the weekend and you get three days off from 1 to 3 June (Saturday to Monday). Fun fact: No additional leave necessary.

Hari Raya Haji – 17 June
Long weekend from Saturday 15 June to Monday 17 June. Also no additional leave necessary.

Awal Muharram – 8 July

Awal Muharram falls on Sunday which means the following Monday is a public holiday. So it’s a long weekend from 6 to 8 July (Saturday to Monday) with no additional leave necessary.
*Johor, Kedah, Kelantan, and Terengganu will not get an off day on 8 July.

Malaysia Day & Prophet’s Muhammad’s Birthday – 16 September

Another long weekend from 14 to 16 September (Saturday to Monday).

Deepavali – 31 October
