There are many beautiful legends about the moon in China.
The Moon Festival, also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, dates back over 3,000 years and the celebrations continue today. The holiday is celebrated with gusto in all Chinese-speaking regions during which mountains of mooncakes are consumed and given as presents.
This year, Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong pays tribute to this celestial tradition with a selection of hand-crafted mooncakes from Michelin three-star Chinese restaurant, Lung King Heen as well as Four Seasons branded mooncakes.
