Agoda.com, one of Asia’s leading hotel booking sites and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq:PCLN), has collaborated with its hotel teams in four countries to come up with a list of special low prices to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, one of Asia’s most culturally significant events.
With its roots in ancient China and Vietnam, the festival is celebrated in various ways in different Asian countries. All of them share certain core elements – boisterous reunions with family and friends, giving thanks for a bountiful harvest, and making offerings and prayers to ensure a healthy upcoming year for loved ones.
As with many festivals in Asia, there is also plenty of food and music, as well as enthusiastic cultural celebrations in nearly every town and city. The ubiquitous mooncake is sold on every street corner, and locals come out to watch colorful lanterns and decorative floats in town parades. The actual festival date this year is 27 September, but travel and vacation time often continues for some time after.
To celebrate, Agoda.com is offering great hotel specials in Taiwan, Macau, Hong Kong, and South Korea, with savings of up to 60%. A special landing page for each country has been set up where you can browse and choose the hotel of your liking.
But the opportunity won’t last long. Bookings must be made between 1-14 September and only for stays from 1 September-30 November, 2015.
No matter which country you decide to head to, it’s impossible not to enjoy the celebrations and festive atmosphere. To browse hotels and make a booking, head to the page of the country you wish to visit below:
