In the run-up to the Mid-Autumn Festival, the Haizhu district of Guangzhou - capital of South China's Guangdong province - has launched a collection of cultural and tourism-themed mooncakes, combining aesthetics and deliciousness.
The Canton Tower in the district has brought out a mooncake gift box, which features the fashionable design of the building and exquisite patterns such as Canton porcelain and paper cutting. The gift box also contains limited-edition digital collections.

Not to be outdone, the Guangzhou Shangri-La Hotel's 22 varieties of mooncake gift boxes are inspired by traditional Asian flowers, including osmanthus fragrans, peonies and chrysanthemums.
Among other special things, the Langham Place Guangzhou hotel's mooncake gift boxes have been especially designed by illustrators, depicting the mythical legends of Chang'e flying to the Moon and the Jade Rabbit in the Moon Palace.
And then there's the design of the Westin Pazhou's mooncake gift boxes, which on the outside combine turquoise green and metallic silver – reflecting the grandeur and elegance of the establishment.

Last but not least, the InterContinental Guangzhou Exhibition Center's gift boxes feature the blooming hibiscus flower in late autumn as the main design visual, using the names of hibiscus flowers in their different blooming stages to name these gift boxes.
