If you are visiting Hong Kong in the next couple of weeks, this colorful festival could be the highlight of your visit. For 11 days in early September the city comes alive with lantern displays, feasting and fire dragon dances in a celebration of harvest time and the brightest moon of the year.
Moon cakes are the ubiquitous festival snack. Made of ground lotus and sesame seed paste, egg-yolk and other ingredients, many locals can be found munching on them at The Peak come nightfall, as they light their lanterns at Hong Kong city’s highest point.
