It’s never too early to plan your holidays! Take advantage of 2019’s long weekends with this simple travel guide.

The Thais are world-famous for their massages, so it would be pure bliss to spend your days having all your knots kneaded out of your body.

Everyone loves long weekends, and everyone loves holidays. And when you combine them both, it makes the perfect remedy for countless hours of hustling in the office. Thankfully, with Malaysia being a melting pot of various cultures, there’s always a public holiday just round the corner. We’re also blessed with a great geographical location, as most travel destinations within Asia are within a 7-hour flight radius.

If you put two and two together, there’s no wonder why Malaysians love taking advantage of long weekends to travel around. In fact, Malaysians love travelling so much that we recorded 253.9 million trips* in 2016 - 8% more than the previous year!

If your resolution for the New Year is to travel more, it’s time to start planning ahead to ensure you make the best out of your time and money.

Here’s a simple guide to help you:
FEBRUARY

Besides that, you can also head down to Chinatown where you can catch a glimpse of how the Thais celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year!

MAY
1st – 5th May: 5 days of golfing in sunny Hawaii

Holiday: Labour Day (1st May)
Apply leave: Thursday and Friday (2nd – 3rd May)

In the month of May, the weather in Hawaii becomes absolutely irresistible – it’s dry and warm, making it an ideal time to be out in the sun. This is especially perfect if you love a good tee-off with your best mates. Hawaii offers more than 70 golf courses that are both private and public, and they each come with varying challenges for golfers of all levels. The best part? The unforgettable slopes, cliffs and prehistoric lava fields that will stay on in your memory for years to come!

JUNE
5th – 9th June: 5 days of luxury living in Abu Dhabi

Holiday: Hari Raya Puasa (5th – 6th June)
Apply leave: Friday (7th June)

If you love the finest things in life, look no further than Abu Dhabi. This rich, modern city has been made to spoil you in pure luxury in every way: from classy airport lounges to supercar rides, from 5- star desert safari tours to the most opulent hotels. But the best part? The Middle East isn’t exactly the most expected holiday destination among Malaysians, so why not try a new culture altogether?

DECEMBER
25th – 29th December: 5 days of retail therapy in Hong Kong

Holiday: Christmas (25th Dec)
Apply leave: Thursday and Friday (26th – 27th Dec)

Hong Kong is a shopping haven all year round, but it goes on overdrive in December! The Hong Kong Shopping Season begins in late December and runs through Chinese New Year, so you’ll arrive just in time to snap up bargains in mid- and up-scale designer stores. And how’s this for a cherry on top? You’ll also get to enjoy the cold winter breeze while taking in magical festive decorations all around town.
