Mark your calendars and plan your day offs!
Here is your ultimate guide to Singapore's public holidays in 2023 and what to expect for 2024!
Friday 2nd June 2023 will mark Vesak Day, celebrated by Buddhists worldwide to celebrate the birth, enlightenment, and death of Gautama Buddha. It's a holiday meant for reflection, kindness, and acts of generosity and charity.
Later on in the same month will be Hari Raya Haji on Thursday 29th June, which is the end of Hajj (yearly Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia). We recommend taking Friday as a day off to enjoy a four-day long weekend.
The island will be celebrating Singapore National Day on Wednesday 9th August, 2023.
Celebrate the Hindu Festival of Lights, Diwali (also known as Deepavali) on Sunday 12th November. We recommend visiting Little India for some cultural festivities and Diwali events, and tuck into a delicious authentic Indian meal.
Enjoy a festive break with Christmas Day falling on Monday 25th December, perfect for relaxing after a weekend of Christmas celebrations or if you want to keep the holidays rolling.
