Missing the hustle and bustle of mooncake fairs at shopping malls? You may not get to try heaps of samples this year, but on the bright side, you don’t have to brave any crowds – just hop online in the comfort of your home to browse through this year’s mooncake varieties. Most of this year’s mooncake hustle is happening online, with businesses seeing a surge in the lead-up to the Mid-Autumn Festival on Oct 1.
In addition to their own e-commerce sites, many mooncake purveyors have gone onto multiple online platforms such as Qoo10 and Lazada, which provide the ease of ordering across multiple vendors as well as delivery.
Takashimaya Department Store and Tangs – traditionally known for their annual atrium mooncake fairs – also retail mooncakes online now. Both also have a reduced number of mooncake booths operating within store premises.
If you’re looking to place an order online, here are some places you can try.
