There Are 7 LONG WEEKENDS In Singapore Next Year! Here’s How You Can Maximise Your Leave For The 2020 Public Holidays

It’s never too early to make vacation plans.

Those who love going on quick and fuss-free getaways (without expending too much of their annual leave) should know this: It hasn’t been quite so easy the past two years, given that there were only four long weekends to play around with. Good news — next year will see a whopping seven long weekends. There will be 11 public holidays in 2020, four of which will fall on a Friday, while three will fall on a Sunday.

We all know what this means — time to maximise your leave for easy peasy weekend escapes. Below’s how we think you should plan your leave to fully make use of what you have:
