Background Information

Weekend Public Holidays: When the Memorial public holidays and the Festival public holidays fall on a Saturday or Sunday, a deferred day off is not allowed. However, Chinese New Year and Chinese New Year's Eve are exempted from this regulation. The regulations for deferred holiday for Labor Day and the Military Memorial Days or other deferred days are determined by the Central Agency Responsible.  Bridge Holidays are sometimes declared on Mondays or Fridays to be able to have an extra long holiday period that would then include a weekend. Work Saturdays are often then declared in order to make up for these extra public holidays. In Taiwan, the Work Saturdays seem to almost always be the Saturday of the following week. This practice, however, seems to have been suspended for calendar year 2008.  2007 Work Saturdays: March 3, April 14, June 23, September 29.  Non-Official Holidays: The following are not official public holidays, but companies can give their employees a day off at their discretion: •Youth Day (Mach 29) • Women and Children's Day (April 4) •Buddha's Birthday •Confucius' Birthday or Teacher's Day (Sept. 28) •Retrocession Day (Oct. 25) •Chiang Kai Sek's Birthday (Oct. 31) •Sun Yet Sin's Birthday (Nov. 12) •Constitution or Christmas Day (Dec. 25).  Taiwan International Codes TW and TWN (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .tw (ICANN national top-level internet domain). • Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Taiwan information and news: ASI Hot Spots (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Taiwan maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Taiwan), and Wikipedia (includes Taiwan commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).
