7 Long weekends in Singapore in 2018


As luck would have it, it turns out that 2018 is a bumper year for Singapore when it comes to long weekends. There are no fewer than 7 long weekends this year, 2018. And this isn't even including the 3 Singapore public holidays that fall on Thursday or Tuesday. Which means that, amazingly, if you have 3 leave days to spare, you could spend a total of 10 long weekends recreating and holidaying in 2018 in or outside of Singapore. An average of almost one long weekend each month!

Tioman, being not only a little slice of paradise, but very accessible too, is the ideal destination for those looking to spend a long weekend away from Singapore. Tioman Island is far away enough from Singapore to give you that totally blissful holiday feeling, yet it's not so far that it will take endless hours of travel. Yes, folks, to reach this tropical beach paradise, you won't even need to take the plane.

That being said, given Tioman's ever-growing popularity, amongst Singaporeans and expats alike, it makes sense to book your long weekends early, for example with Agoda. This way, you won't need to pay for your reservations until your trip date is approaching and, best of all, you can cancel your trip free of charge. We tend to recommend Agoda, because of these friendly booking terms, but also because of their Lowest Price Guarantee.

But first of all, let's have a look at the long weekends in 2018 in Singapore. Just click your long weekend of choice to check availability of Tioman's hotels and resorts.

New Year’s Day 1 January (Falls on a Thursday, so you'll need to take Friday off)
Chinese New Year     19 and 20 February (Thursday and Friday)
Good Friday 3 April (Friday)
Labour Day 1 May (Friday)
Vesak Day 1 June (Monday)
Hari Raya 17 July (Friday)
National Day 9 August (Falls on a Sunday, so Monday is given off instead)
Hari Raya Haji 24 September (Falls on a Thursday, so you'll need to take Friday off)
Deepavali 10 November (Falls on a Tuesday, so you'll need to take Monday off)
Christmas 25 December (Friday)

Need a quick list of tips to ensure your long weekend holiday goes according to plan? Follow below suggestions and you'll be lazing away on your paradise beach before you can say "This is the life".

1. Decide on a type of holiday you need. Tioman, for instance is awesome for snorkeling, scuba diving, jungle trekking or just kicking back on the beach, watching the gorgeous sunsets Tioman is famous for. As well as all the other fun activities you can do here of course.

2. Find a few friends who are just as keen to go to paradise as you. (Tell them about our 10 long weekends secret and they're sure to join you).

3. Check prices of hotels, resorts and of course your transport options.

4. If you're going for the long weekend that requires a leave day, now is the time to apply for that leave.

5. Book your trip. We recommend you don't wait too long before booking, because you're bound to be one of many Tioman travellers keen to make the most of their long weekends.

6. Need to save for your long weekend trip? Best start now. However, with hotel rates as low as they are in Tioman, it's unlikely that budget will be an issue.

7. Countdown. You're all set to go on that dream trip. All that remains is to count the days left :)

8. You're off! Bon voyage and enjoy yourself!
