It’s almost New Year — which means a new blank slate for vacation-planning for the eager beavers among us. To make things a whole lot easier, we’ve listed all of Hong Kong’s 2017 holidays below (which we took straight from the GovHK website).

This year, there are 13 weekday holidays, and 4 Saturday holidays (which means those who have five-day work weeks end up losing out), for a grand total of 17 holidays.

You’re welcome!
