Malaysia Holidays 2011

Still not too late to plan your holidays.

Get a 6-day weekend by taking 1 day off on the 29th August or the 2nd September. This is the best value as there is 3 day holiday that week. Or even better take both those days off and get a 9-day break.

Take 1 day off on the 29th April or 3rd of May and get a 4-day weekend. Similar for 16th May, 15th or 19th September, 4th or 8th November, 25th or 29th November, and 23rd or 27th December.

Also take 2 days off and get a 5-day weekend on 24th and 25th October. Or alternately take off on 27th and 28th October.

Check out your own state's holidays and plan with them in mind as well.
