If you're anything like us, you'll be busy planning next year's holidays or long weekends away to some remote tropical island.
Below is a list of the National Public Holidays for the Republic of Indonesia during 2015. With just a little pre-planning, you could manage around 10 long weekends throughout the year!
|01 January||New Years Day|
|03 January||Maulidur Rasul|
|18 February||Chinese New Year|
|21 March||Nyepi (Balinese New Year)|
|03 April||Good Friday|
|01 May||Labour Day|
|03 May||Waisak Day (Birth of Buddha)|
|14 May||Ascension Day|
|15 May||Isra Miraj|
|17 July||Hari Raya Puasa (End of Ramadan)|
|18 July||Eid Al-Fitr|
|17 August||Independence Day|
|23 September||Idul Adha|
|13 October||Muharram (Islamic New Year)|
|25 December||Christmas Day|
Note that next year Nyepi falls on Saturday, 21 March. On this day, everything in Bali shuts down, including the airport, and everyone has to stay indoors to reflect on the past year and the approaching new year.
Even hotel guests are not allowed outside on this very important religious Balinese holiday, so it's a great excuse to simply relax and do nothing!
