January 3, 2018 Louise Newsham

If you ask us, it’s never too early to get started on your vacation planning! That’s why we’ve rounded up all the confirmed long weekends and public holidays in Indonesia for 2018. After all, Bali is blessed with countless religious celebrations and ceremonies each year, so we’d better make the most of them. We’ve counted eight long weekends [including a week long break!] and seven other beach-tripping, cocktail-sipping opportunities. So if you need some inspiration on where to go for holidays, we’ve got a list of travel guides below. Start planning early!

But if you’re all set for that off-island vacay you desperately need, we’ve prepared some features to fuel that #wanderlust in you. Selamat jalan, Honeys!
