LIST: Philippine Public Holidays for 2021

Download and print this cheerful and optimistic calendar for 2021!

What’s in store for 2021? The past year may have rendered our 2020 planners useless, but now we’ve got another 12 months to fill up — with work, with holidays and vacations, and hopefully with travel plans, too.

Cebu Pacific’s cheerful 2021 calendar is downloadable and printable, and can also be used as desktop wallpaper. To download, right-click on the images, choose “Save Image as…” and choose the location on your computer. Print from there, or set the image as your wallpaper (that’s handy!).

Below are the public holidays for the Philippines in 2021, along with dates for special non-working days. Plan your trips for then, and make sure to check for the latest updates about your destinations on the Department of Tourism’s SafePH website and app.

While you’re at it, why not read Smile’s latest travel inspiration stories: Three new tiny cafes off Metro Manila that dared to open during Covid-19, a popular fried chicken restaurant in Bacolod renovates for the first time after 19 years, and the hottest place in Siargao right now is this kinilaw bar with a skateboarding bowl.
