This tradition of celebration of the heliday has a history of over 3,000 years. Sharing a mooncake is a ceremony and family members will go a shop to buy a cake from a bakery or supermarket.  When you visit a friend, the best way is to bring a good brand moon cake as your gift. You will see a lot of shops in selling countless moon cake brands.

Not every one from expatriate communities like the cake as you may feel too sweet or dislike its double egg yolks. But you could try and have a great fun with locals for the feast.
