Celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival With These Delectable Mooncakes

It was the Chinese moon goddess Chang’e that inspired the Mid-Autumn Festival celebrated across various territories across Asia today. From the myth of the moon goddess to the celebration of bountiful harvests during the autumn season, the Mid-Autumn Festival has come to be a symbol of reunion and thanksgiving. 

At Newport World Resorts, this festive season takes on the same elegance of the moon goddess herself. Celebrated every 15th day of the 8th month of the lunisolar calendar—falling on September of this year, the Mid-Autumn Festival is an opportunity for loved ones to live for the hope of it all and give thanks under the brightest and fullest moon of the year. 

Pay homage to the moon with Newport World Resorts’ signature mooncake collection. Savor the distinct flavor of autumn with the intricately crafted pastries that come in ube, red bean, and lotus flavors.
