There will be six long weekends next year, according to the list of gazetted public holidays announced by the Ministry of Manpower. 

Seven of the 11 public holidays fall on a Friday, Sunday or Monday. As New Year’s Day and Deepavali fall on a Sunday, the following Monday will be a public holiday. Chinese New Year falls on consecutive days on Sunday and Monday, thus the following Tuesday is a Public Holiday making it a 4 day-long weekend.
