Maximizing 2019 Public Holidays

18 October 2018

It's never too early to talk about public holidays. With 16 public holidays in 2019, it only means more opportunity to hop on a flight and explore the amazing countries nearby Hong Kong.

I am sure we have all experienced trying to book an escape a few weeks in advance of a public holiday where flights are often at least twice the normal price and hotels availability is at an all time low.

Here is our guide to making the most out of the Hong Kong public holidays for 2019. Combine public holidays with weekends and you get a longer holiday.

New Year (1 January, Tuesday)

Chinese New Year (5-7 February, Tuesday to Thursday)

Ching Ming Festival (5 April, Friday)

Easter (19-22 April, Friday to Monday)

May Public Holidays (1 May, Wednesday & 13 May, Monday)

Dragon Boat Weekend (7 June, Friday)

July, September and October holidays
HKSAR Day Holiday on 1 July (Monday)
Mid-Autumn Holiday on 14 September (Saturday)
National Day on 1 October (Tuesday)
Chung Yeung Festival on 7 October (Monday)

Christmas/New Year (25-26 December, Wednesday-Thursday)

Planning ahead is the key to maximising your annual leave, grabbing the best deals, along with having lots of choice and options on where you want to go.
