In Singapore, the minimum amount of leave entitlement employers are legally required to give is seven days. Which is not a lot, considering that we also have one of the longest working hours per week (45 hours), ahead of China at 42 hours.
Coupled with not much land space to escape to, it's no wonder that travelling is Singaporeans' favourite pastime. Even a trip across the causeway will help to dissipate the restlessness of living among one of the world's highest high population density.
It pays to be smart with your precious leave entitlement, which can allow you to take longer and deeper rest, positively impacting your mental health. This is why we've come up with a leave planner to help you plan 2023's leave, with a mere seven to eight days.

Just look at the bright gradient green and blue boxes for specific dates to take leave!
