9 Places In Singapore To Get Mooncakes For Mid-Autumn Festival 2015

Mooncake 2015

Mid-Autumn Festival is an annual celebration that occurs on the 15th day of the 8th month in the Chinese calendar – where the moon is the brightest and roundest. Consumption of these moon-shaped cakes is an ancient tradition that started since 3000 years ago. The festive event is symbolic of family reunions; the Chinese make it a point to return home on this day to have dinner with their families under the full moon.

The custom has evolved tremendously in present day and mooncakes are now widely exchanged commodities in Singapore. The practice of gifting mooncakes had become a method of maintaining personal and professional relations. This year’s Mid-Autumn Festival falls on 27 September 2015, but as usual, most hotels and restaurants in Singapore have already started selling boxes of tasty mooncakes that are available in all sorts of flavours and shapes.

From traditionally baked lotus-filled mooncakes to the contemporary snowskin mooncakes, here is our guide to the 9 Hotels & Restaurants in Singapore to get mooncakes for Mid-Autumn Festival 2015.
