Best Long Weekends in Malaysia in 2019

Who doesn’t love a good holiday? Especially when it falls on a Friday or Monday and turns it into an extended long weekend?

Did you know that Malaysians are some of the most vacation-starved people in the world? 🙂

With major celebrations such as Chinese New Year and Hari Raya each offering two full days of public holiday, there are many other dates throughout the calendar that can be “stretched” to enable us to enjoy an extended break.

Expedia 2017’s Vacation Deprivation report which observed the vacation habits of more than 15,000 working adults spread across 30 nations revealed several interesting findings.

Firstly, millennials are fighting a losing battle trying to achieve a solid work-life balance as they recorded the highest percentage of vacation-deprived respondents at 62%.

Secondly, those in the marketing and media field were also ranked as the most deprived globally at 66%.

And thirdly, out of 18 vacation days available to Malaysians, on average four are left unused – and wasted – each year.

Finder would like to help you use those days you have purposefully, by ensuring that you get to plan well ahead and give yourself enough mental space and time to disconnect. If you are making travelling plans for your family, great! Otherwise, there’s no harm taking a three-day break to recharge.

Without further ado, let us present to you 2019’s best long weekends! Plan ahead now everyone!

Finder does not nag, but we also know that travel insurance makes all the difference – especially if something untoward does happen during your planned holiday. If you are looking for Takaful plan, read about these three recommended travel insurance policies.
