Public Holidays 2014 Malaysia
Ben van Wijnen

The Malay culture is one of the most accepting and diverse cultures in the world.
On public holidays government offices are expected to be closed, as well as some shops and restaurants, depending on the ethnicity of the shop owner or restaurant owner.
During Hari Raya Puasa and Chinese New Year you can expect many shop and restaurant are closed. However, look out for special sales and celebrations.
Also count on public parks, shopping malls, and beaches to be more crowded during public holidays, as Malaysians will be taking advantage of their time off.
