Restaurants across the city have prepared the ultimate gift sets to celebrate this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival. Here we present the best mooncake hampers in Jakarta this 2023.

Mooncakes are traditional Chinese pastries with great cultural significance, particularly during the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival. The Mid-Autumn Festival, which usually falls on the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar (around September or early October in the Gregorian calendar), is a time for families to gather and celebrate the harvest moon.

Mooncakes are symbols of unity and togetherness, as they are often shared among family members and friends during the festival. The round shape of mooncakes is reminiscent of the full moon, which symbolizes completeness and reunion. In addition to their visual symbolism, the act of giving and receiving mooncakes reflects the desire to strengthen bonds and show appreciation for one another’s company. The Moon Festival is celebrated widely in Jakarta, and so hotels and restaurants across the city prepare truly extraordinary mooncake creations and associated hampers and gift sets.
