KUALA LUMPUR, 25 AUGUST 2022 – As the moon shines bright in the sky this Mid-Autumn Festival, Pavilion REIT Malls are illuminated with a spectacular display of colourful lantern decorations, a fantastic selection of artisan mooncakes, and fun-filled Mid-Autumn activities perfect for the whole family from now until 11 September!
PAVILION KUALA LUMPUR
Malaysia’s premier shopping destination, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, invites shoppers to celebrate ‘Moonlit Mid Autumn’, with the largest Mooncake Bazaar in Bukit Bintang at Centre Court. Shoppers are invited to treat themselves to over 100 mooncakes from award-winning brands and five-star hotels.
Festooned with hundreds of colourful festive Chinese lanterns, the ‘Moonlit Mid Autumn’ Mooncake Bazaar is the place to shop for all your Mid-Autumn essentials. Choose from an exciting variety of stunning mooncakes and gift boxes, from traditional classics such as White Lotus Paste to unique flavuors including Dragonfruit and Cranberry, or Hazelnut Custard Double Yolk. Don’t forget to also opt for seasonal sweets, teas and lanterns that make ideal gifts.
This year’s Mooncake Bazaar features an impressive line-up from eight renowned 5-star hotels, including Pavilion Hotel’s whimsical Moonlight Garden Mooncake Collection; Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur’s innovative destination inspired snow skin mooncakes; and EQ Kuala Lumpur’s Japanese inspired handcrafted Nerikiri Wagashi mooncakes.

To immerse themselves in the Mid-Autumn festivities, shoppers are invited to engage in the Lantern Riddle challenge to test their knowledge by solving brain teasers and riddles attached to the hanging lanterns at Centre Court. These not only symbolise happy family reunions, but also good luck and fortune, a tradition that dates as far back as the Northern Song Dynasty.
