2014 Philippine Holidays

Photo credit: innseasonclub.wordpress.com

Hi, everyone! I'm back to writing after quite a long time of not updating my blog. I've been quite busy with a number of things for the past 7 months, and have only found the time to sit & write just now.

I still owe this blog (and its audience) a post about my recent travel to Thailand, and that should be coming out soon! In the meantime, here's a helpful little post for all of you, especially those who love to travel but have a regular job schedule.

So...last October, the Philippine government has released its list of holidays for the year 2014. Good thing they released this early enough so people (myself included) could plot out their vacation leaves and plan their trips more efficiently! In my aim to help you, my fellow travel freaks, I'm posting the list right here.

With no further ado, here's the list of 2014 Philippine holidays (regular and special non-working) as per the Official Gazette of the Philippine Government:
