    Make Your Own Mooncakes

    We get bombarded with a plethora of new mooncake flavours each year, from durian to milk tea. Now you can make your own. Cooking Fever  in Kwun Tong hosts workshops so foodies can whip up their favourites – from mooncakes with goji berries, figs and mixed nuts to a Taiwanese version of the Mid-Autumn staple with a matcha or purple sweet potato creamy custard filling encased in ‘thousand layers’ pastry.

    Eco-friendly Moon-gazing

    Eco Travel ’s Mid-Autumn Festival-themed tour takes guests by boat to Hong Kong’s eastern waters to the geological wonders of Wong Chuk Kok Tsui and Ap Chau before heading to Yan Chau Tong for the highlight of the night: moon-gazing.

    Cheung Chau

    Lunar Glamping

    Who wants to be in town throughout the festival? Get outdoors at Sai Yuen, a campsite  and adventure park at the southwestern tip of Cheung Chau where you can spend the night in a ‘Star Gazing Geodesic Dome’. Through its transparent ceiling, you can take in the moonlit sky. Plenty of outdoor activities and workshops are also available on-site.

    Create a Mini Smaug

    The Tai Hang fire dragon dance is one of Hong Kong’s unique cultural traditions. More than a century after the first event, the three-day spectacle still draws big crowds to the neighbourhood during the Mid-Autumn Festival.
