Public holidays in Malaysia are observed differently in each individual state. For example, some states observe Good Friday, a Christian holiday, and others will celebrate the birthdays of noteworthy regional historical figures. Expats should check with their provincial government for an official list of public holidays in their area.

*Public holidays in Malaysia that fall on a Sunday are observed the following Monday.
