Public holidays in Hong Kong 2024
We’re getting 17 days off in 2024, which sounds good, but two still land on Saturdays, which breaks our hearts. However, we have public holidays almost every month of the year – a blessing compared to 2023. Plus, you can get seven long weekends without having to use your annual leave (and a whopping 10 if you do!), so that’s a huge plus. Whip your calendars out!
1 January (Monday) – The first day of January
10 February (Saturday) – Lunar New Year’s Day
12 February (Monday) – The third day of Lunar New Year
13 February (Tuesday) – The fourth day of Lunar New Year
With Valentine’s Day falling on the fifth day of Lunar New Year, why not book an extra day off before or after the public holidays in February 2024 to commemorate the romantic occasion?
