We are already more than halfway through the year 2018. As holidays are so precious, it’s time to plan your holiday ahead for 2019.

According to the 2019 public holiday calendar announced by the HKSAR government, Hongkongers can look forward to several long weekends in the coming year. Here are some tactics to help maximise your days off.

January
Although the first day of January in 2019 falls on Tuesday, one can enjoy an 11-day break by taking 4 days (24, 27, 28 and 31 of December) off.

February
Next year’s Chinese New Year Holiday starts from 5 February to 7 February (Tuesday to Thursday). One can take Monday (4 February) and Friday (8 February) off to enjoy a week-long holiday.

April
One can get 10 consecutive days off by taking four days of leave on next year Easter. The Easter holidays start from 19 to 22 of April. One can take 23 to 26 of April off to enjoy a 10-day holiday.

May
As the Birthday of the Buddha next year falls on Sunday, the day following it, which is Monday, is therefore designated as a public holiday. One can take Friday (10 May) or Tuesday (14 May) off to enjoy a four-day break.

June
Tuen Ng Festival is on Friday (7 June). One can enjoy a four-day break by taking Thursday (6 June) or Monday (10 June) off.

July
The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Establishment Day in 2019 is on Monday. That means Hongkongers are going to enjoy another long weekend in July.

October
The National Day (1 October) holiday is on Tuesday, coupled with the Chung Yeung Festival on Monday 7 October, a 10-day long break can be looking forward to by taking 4 days (30 September, 2-4 October) off.

December
Dreaming of a white Christmas in Europe? Then don’t miss the Christmas and New Year Eve holiday in 2019! One can take 23, 24, 27, 30 and 31 of December off, coupled with the first day of January in 2020, a long happy new year is no longer a dream!
