Malaysia Public Holidays 2015
Cuti Umum & Cuti Sekolah 2015

Malaysia Public Holidays are something you have to take into account when planning a holiday in Malaysia. We have probably one of the highest number of state and national holidays in the world ;). Below is the Malaysia Calendar for Malaysia Public Holiday 2012.

Note that for the states of Kedah, Kelantan and Trengganu, weekends means Fridays and Saturdays instead of Saturdays and Sundays for the rests of the states. Also note that if a public holiday falls on a Sunday (Saturday for Kedah, Kelantan and Trengganu), then the following day, Monday (Sunday for the 3 Muslim states), is also a holiday.
