The Mid-Autumn Festival is fast approaching, and the best place to join in this celebration is undoubtedly Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok, where panoramic views of the Chao Phraya River – swelling from the monsoon runoff of its vast watershed – are complemented by the captivating riverside charm of our engaging staff and fine dining facilities.

Mooncakes are a celebrated feature of the Mid-Autumn Festival, a harvest festival held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar. This is a major holiday for ethnic Chinese, Vietnamese and other Asian people throughout the world, signifying as it does the three fundamental concepts of Gathering, Prayer and Thanksgiving. This year the Mid-Autumn Festival falls on September 24.

The round shape of the mooncakes represents the fullness of the harvest moon, and symbolizes completeness and unity.  They are given as gifts to family members and friends, reinforcing a sense of community at the time of the gathering for the harvest.

Our bakery chefs will be preparing mooncakes in four irresistible flavors – durian, lotus seed, custard, and mixed fruits & nuts. A box of 4 mooncakes is available for THB 790 net or a single mooncake (170 grams) for THB 199 net from August 26 to September 24, 2018.
