Primary and secondary schools will start on Wednesday, Jan 2. Meanwhile, junior colleges and the Millennia Institute will start on Friday, Feb 1.

The best time to take a family vacation appears to be the first week of June.

That way, you can make the most of the Hari Raya Puasa holiday on June 5 and enjoy a 5D4N vacation with just 4 days of leave.

There are also a handful of school holidays you can take advantage of:

  • Monday, 8 Jul (Youth Day)
  • Friday, 6 Sep (Teachers’ Day)
  • Friday, 4 Oct (Children’s Day–for primary schools and primary sections of full schools only)

All three extend into the weekend, which is perfect for a quick 3D2N getaway. See you at the beach!
