We already know that Malaysia has a reputation as a country with among the most public holidays in the world.
Well, for 2018 we can add to that the fact that we have a bumper crop of long weekends as well.

As soon as the official public holiday list for 2018 was released, Malaysians have already started planning their weekend getaway for the year ahead.

To help our readers stretch those many public holidays even further, Malaysian Digest has compiled a list of long weekends for the year 2018 that will surely benefit our readers when they plan out their next island getaway or a road trip to the Pearl of the Orient.

But how often have we overlooked the window of opportunity (i.e. the long weekend that beckons) due to our busy schedule coupled with our need to catch up on our sleep?

Lifestyle portal was way ahead when it reported on how to stretch an initial 5 long weekends into a total of 11 by taking leave on the gap days which falls on corresponding Mondays.
