Singapore Public Holidays (2012)

I am now planning to purchase the airline ticket for next year 2012.  Buying 3 months in advance would have a great advantage because of the low price the airline offers.  


I listed all the Singapore Public Holidays for the year 2012, so I could see what is the best day to buy one.

  1. I joined three Original Singapore Walks: Chinatown, Little India and Kampong Glam. All three guides were entertaining, with an excellent knowledge of Singapore's history. I was initially concerned that each of the tours involved stops at local shops but these stops turned out to provide insights into local Chinese http://www.privatetoursinistanbul.com Indian and Malay traditions. They included a Chinese herbal medicine shop, an Indian sweet shop, a shop where Muslims can buy non-alcholic perfumes, a sari shop, a sarong shop. There was never any pressure to buy from these. The walks included things you would miss if you travelled around the areas alone, e.g. an unidentified graveyard where members of the original Sultan's family are buried, as well as provided interesting insights into Singaporean temples and mosques.

  2. I don't really know about the situation for MNCs, but if you are working for a local company or SME (especially if its a local chinese boss), they will typically close the office for the week on Chinese New Year and only reopen on an auspicious day. Great for workers like me!
