Celebrating Mid-Autumn Festival with Family in Singapore

The Mid-Autumn Festival is the second most significant festival in China after the Chinese New Year. It is derived from the custom of moon worship over 3,000 years ago during the Zhou Dynasty. In ancient China, the traditional Chinese emperors worshipped the moon annually and the custom was accepted by the masses over time. The festival falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month and is also referred to as the Mooncake Festival.

These days, the custom of offering sacrifices to the full moon has been replaced by celebrating the festival date with family and friends. It’s a time for families to sit in gardens lit by paper lanterns and sip tea as they enjoy their mooncakes.

Where to go and celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival with family

The Mid-Autumn Festival is around the corner and there are lots of fun activities to do during this period. The festival is basically a thanksgiving ceremony where families gather to eat mooncakes and admire the full moon. Lanterns that symbolize the moon’s light are carried.

Singapore is always set to mark this cultural affair in style. Here are some of the things you can do with your family: 

  • Visit Chinatown

Chinatown always has an exciting line-up of activities during the Mid-Autumn Festival so there’s something for everyone. Usually, as many as 700 lanterns and sculptures are placed along the New Bridge Road, Eu Tong Sen Street, and South Bridge Road.

  • Gardens by the bay

The Mid-Autumn Festival at landmark is always stunning with breathtaking lanterns being displayed here. Over 2,000 lanterns are hand-painted by different community groups.

  • Singapore Chinese Cultural Center

The SCCC offers visitors tons of activities ranging from lantern walks, mooncake tasting, and lantern riddles. All these are familiar practices associated with the Mid-Autumn Festival.

  • Marina Bay sands

Another place to be during the Mid-Autumn Festival is the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. Marina Bay Sands puts a pastry-making spin on the traditional mooncake recipe creating two novel versions that you ought to try out. These freshly baked treats are made daily.

  • Merlion Park

During this time of year, the Merlion is Singapore’s centerpiece. The Merlion is a half-fish half-lion creature that’s beloved to the Chinese who go to Merlion Park to see it. It’s believed to be a marketing tool for tourism for the country.

  • The Southern Ridges

These ridges are the green heart of the city and there’s no better place to take a bird-watching tour than here. This popular route offers scenic views of the southern coastline as well as the port of Singapore.

  • Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve
