Singapore Long Weekends - 2023

Home / Tickets / Update* / Blog


The year 2023 has blessed us with a bumper crop of long weekends. In fact, we can look forward to a grand total of 6 long weekends this year. The reason for this relatively high number is the fact that this year several public holidays fall on a Sunday, which instantly turns that particular following Monday into a gratuitous off day. Bonus benefit: fewer Mondays to contend with :)

If you want to check availability of the hotels and resorts for the stretch of dates you're planning to go? Just click on the dates in question and browse the overview of accommodations presented for your dates selected dates. You can book your room on the spot.

We wish all travelers a whale of a time

One more item of interest to note for revelers going to Tioman by means of the Mersing to Tioman ferry. These days, increasing quantity of Tioman rooms has resulted in the situation that currently the number of rooms in Tioman, be it in hotels, resorts or other accommodation types, exceeds the number of ferry tickets available for any given day. This shortfall actually gets worse on days the tide in Mersing is not suitable, or the weather isn't cooperating.

In other words, the ferry is only able to travel to and from on days conditions are conducive, which in Mersing isn't always the case, given the relatively shallow Mersing river mouth.

As such, it makes sense to not wait too long to book your ferry tickets. Last thing anyone wants is to have a room booking but no ferry to take you to that room on that day.

We also recommend arriving at Mersing Harbour Centre with at least one hour to spare.
