Long Weekend Malaysia 2020

Holidays are always looked forward by many Malaysians as it is the best time for the public to enjoy their break being away from work. As part of the public holidays, there will always be several long weekends that are likely to be scheduled every year. A long weekend is generally an extended weekend of typically three days whereby a holiday falls on the day preceding or following the weekend.

This is where the opportunity is served to plan for holiday trips with family and friends. Travel plans are best-arranged way ahead of time to assure a journey goes smoothly. Be ready to mark the calendar as there will be a total of six long weekends expected to happen in 2020. Hence with the release of public holiday dates for 2020, this allows Malaysian travellers to lay out their travel plan in advance.
