Philippine National Holidays for 2013

The Philippine government has released an infographic of national holidays and special non-working days to enable Filipinos to plan their vacations as early as now. The image was posted on the government’s official Twitter account and summarizes all the holidays under Proclamation No. 459 which was released on September 1 last year.

The last few days of the year would be a perfect time to take your family on a vacation as December 28 and 29 fall on a weekend and are followed by two regular holidays, December 30 and January 1, with December 31 being declared as a special non-working day. Those who are planning on taking their families to destinations with cold climates on those days could take advantage of patagonia fleece clearance sales now. Seat sales and tour packages can also be availed as early as possible to maximize savings.
