If you're the sort who lives for long weekends, you’re probably: A) still mourning the ultra long National Day holiday that’s just passed; B) bemoaning the fact that the next one is two months away (Deepavali on Oct 28); and C) already planning next year’s leave around public holidays. Good thing, then, that there are seven long weekends in 2020, an increase from 2019's four.
What makes all this even sweeter? With some intelligent planning around the 11 public holidays next year, you can get 49 days off by using only 15 days of leave. We’ve even worked out the best times for long vacations by taking the least number of days off. Who doesn’t love a great bargain like that?
Read on, then go chope leave before your colleagues beat you to it.
