Public holidays in Macao 2018-2022
Macau has many holidays, which can also be found in China and Hong Kong. The country's roots are clearly in China and its Chinese lunar calendar. Macau was in Portuguese hands for about 400 years and this can also be seen on the holidays. Although Christmas and Easter (the two highest Christian festivals) are not considered public holidays, they are well known.
The Chinese New Year celebration stretches over 4 days, which are also all work-free. But you don't notice much of this on the spot, because this small country with its impressive casinos lives to an enormous extent from tourism. Only offices and a few shops actually close over the holidays.Back to overview: Macao
