Imagine the smile on their faces when they see this arriving to their doorstep.
Without further ado, scroll down to check out the offering from some of the hotels around KL to brighten up the Mid-Autumn Festival 2021.
1. Mandarin Oriental KL
What we love about Mandarin Oriental’s gift box this year is its sustainability initiative by using bamboo for its packaging. With six halal-certified delicate flavours from Lai Po Heen, you’ll have a choice between their traditional baked, snow skin and chocolate mooncake. While the traditional lotus- , black sesame- and red bean paste are go-to favourites, the health-conscious can mix it up with the low sugar White Lotus Paste mooncake, while chocolate lovers can seek out chocolate mooncakes. Not forgetting the Snowskin Musang King Durian.
