[EDITOR'S NOTE: An earlier version of the story mentioned August 22 as a holiday for Eid Al-Adha. Malacañang later declared August 21 as a holiday both for Ninoy Aquino Day and Eid Al-Adha]

Planning a getaway? You're in luck as there are two holidays and a long weekend this August.

August 21 has been declared a regular holiday both for Ninoy Aquino Day and Eid Al-Adha. 

The long weekend will run from August 26 to August 27 (National Heroes Day).

If you work or go to school in Davao City, another long weekend is available to you. Malacañang has declared August 17 (Friday) and August 20 (Monday) as special non-working holidays in observance of the week-long Kadayawan Festival.
