8 more long-weekend opportunities beckon

The first long weekend of the year may have just ended on Monday, but relax, there are eight other occasions to plan an extended weekend getaway.
Four will coincide with public holidays that fall on either a Friday, Sunday or Monday - Chinese New Year (January), Good Friday (April), Hari Raya Aidilfitri (August) and Hari Raya Haji (October).
And as four other public holidays - Labour Day (May), National Day (August), Deepavali (November) and Christmas (December) - are on a Tuesday or Thursday, taking leave either on Monday or Friday can open up a four-day break.
Those eyeing a longer holiday can take the week off between National Day and Hari Raya Aidilfitri in August to create a 12-day stretch.
