Summary

We commend the Office of the President for the early release of the 2014 list of Philippine holidays under Proclamation No. 655. At this early, business establishments, public offices, schools, and other private offices could plan ahead courses of action towards effective operations during those Philippine holidays under Proclamation No. 655.

For private and public employees, business owners, corporate officers, freelancers in the Philippines, and students of public and private schools, it is a good opportunity to plan a vacation in tourist destinations in the Philippines (e.g. Boracay Philippines, Palawan, Cebu, Bohol, Davao, Camiguin, Leyte-Samar, etc), or plan travels abroad. Please note that it is best to book a plane ticket long ahead of travel dates for cheaper airline tickets.
