Employees who have more experience may receive up to 14 days’ paid vacation, but the average overall number of days still ranks poorly compared with the rest of the world.

And its less-than-ideal vacation policy may have some dark repercussions for residents, beyond just being overworked. Business Insider points out that Singapore ranked second on the list in terms of life expectancy, behind only Tokyo. The only glaring difference between Tokyo and Singapore’s stats?

Japan, Thailand and the USA are the most vacation deprived: Expedia

Japan, Thailand and the USA are the most vacation deprived: Expedia Global vacation deprivation is on the rise, with workers in Japan, Thailand and the USA taking the fewest number of vacation days in the world, according to the latest report from Expedia. The world is tired.

As for the United States, it actually didn’t fare so well, either.

The best city in the world for vacation days, on the other hand, is Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, which was the only city to score a ten in that area. According to the UBS Global Cities Ranking 2018, residents of Riyadh get an average of 37 vacation days per year. Maybe Singapore—and various cities in the United States—could take a lesson from them!
