An example might be Vietnam which has TET. That lets students out of school for 2-3 weeks.

What about in general for Asian countries is there a long vacation break between the second semester of one school year and the first semester of the next school year? It's called summer vacation in USA. With another week off for spring break.

Taiwan:

Summer - July and August. So that's two months. For college students it's from mid/late June to early/mid September, so something like 2 months and 3 weeks to 3 months. There are summer courses for middle school and high schoolers though, and they are like 1 month, which is mandatory and crap (though they might have been cut down now, or they might have canceled it. I haven't been very informed about middle school and high school life in general for a long time).

Winter - The timing isn't fixed as the Lunar New Year fluctuates every year. Usually it's mid/late January to mid/late February, something like 3 - 4 weeks and 5 for college students.

Spring break is usually a week off in April.

China is almost the same as America, but there is no spring/fall break. Winter break is later to accommodate Chinese new year, just like in Taiwan.

Of course there is no day off for thanksgiving and Christmas, but Chinese have their own traditional holidays.

In the Philippines the school break is early April until early June with an additional Christmas break. In a year like next year when Easter falls early Maundy Thursday and Good Friday are already national holidays.

School summer vacation exist in most Asian countries.

Hong Kong- Three school breaks about 2 weeks. Christmas and New Year, Chinese New Year and Easter.
Singapore has these holidays too, not sure about the details.

Both have more holidays than most other Asian countries and countries like the US, Canada, UK and Australia.

Mainland China has longer break for Chinese New Year than HK, Macau, Taiwan and Singapore. .

South Korea has very different time for end of school year examinations and break between different academic years.

In China also they get a week off to celebrate their National Day/October 1st (meaning they always have off the first week of October).

In Japan, school starts in spring. So if you apply for further study in Japan, there is a gap. You have to wait for six to nine months to get enrolled.
