If you are a foreigner who lives in Indonesia or a foreigner who is planning to relocate to Indonesia, you will probably be amazed by how many long weekends the Indonesians get to enjoy throughout the year. While there is 15 public holidays gazette by the government for 2021, the Indonesian government has announced Cuti Bersama – “collective leave/ holiday together” as well. Cuti Bersama is widely known as “Hari Kejepit Nasional”. These collective leaves normally fall on either Monday or Friday, and they are generally before or after a public holiday. That’s why Indonesians have a lot of long weekends to travel for celebrations.

The introduction of collective leave is an initiative of the Indonesian government to promote domestic tourism! So, if you happen to work or relocate to Indonesia in 2021, don’t miss out on this opportunity to check out the hidden gems in Indonesia with all these long weekends.
