Tips for the Mid-Autumn Festival
Lawrence’s favourite way to spend Mid-Autumn Fest: The Mid-Autumn Festival is also known as the Full Moon Festival. Sit under the night sky at Nam Van Lake to view the full moon, share mooncakes and light lanterns. Senado Square and Lou Lim Ieoc Garden are also great places to enjoy the event.

Lawrence’s favourite aspect about Mid-Autumn Festival: Spending time with family is important during this festival because it is traditionally a symbol of reunion.
