If you are beginning to wonder where to go next year, here's the guide for you, listing all long weekends possible in 2020. It is always better to plan ahead well, take advantage of lower fares, than scramble last minute for options.
Unfortunately in 2020 Republic Day, Independence Day, Onam, Dasara, Durga Puja all fall on weekends- such a waste! Another 3 holidays fall middle of the week- you can make a 5 day or 9 day trip if you can get 2 or 4 days off that week. Thankfully rest of the holidays are on Monday/Tuesday/Thursday or Friday, making it easier to plan a long weekend trip.
Below calendar only considers major holidays- do check for your regional, state level or company level leave calendar for precision planning- there will be few more state level holidays, you could be able to avail some optional leaves.
2020 Major world events:
2020 Olympics in Japan - July 24- August 09 T20 Cricket World Cup in Australia, October-November 2020 2020 World Expo, Dubai- October 20
