With boxes of tangerines flooding every supermarket in the city, you just know that Chinese New Year is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to ‘balik kampung! Wooo!

Here's the Best Time to Balik Kampung, According to PLUS - WORLD OF BUZZ 1

However, if you’ve decided to start driving during peak hours, your ‘balik kampung journey can be excruciatingly painful for your soul and your butt as well.

So to prevent that, PLUS has come out with a few non-peak dates where motorists can cruise relatively comfortably on the highway.

  • 12 February (Monday)
  • 13 February (Tuesday)
  • 20 February (Tuesday)
  • 21 February (Wednesday)

The four dates mentioned above are deemed the best times to travel on the highway, as traffic is most likely still tolerable. However, be warned that since many schools have applied for holidays on 14 February, traffic will most probably start to build up on that day!
