Malaysia Public Holidays 2011
Cuti Umum & Cuti Sekolah 2011

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 ;).

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.

(Thanks goes to visitor fantaghiro for pointing out an earlier mistake relating to weekends for the Muslim states)
