Negeri Pulau Pinang Things to Do: 24 reviews and 24 photos


If you happen to be around during the mooncake festival, you've got to try the mooncakes!!! They are really yummie. There will a lot of lanterns hanging everywhere during this festival as well.

The Mooncake Festival commemorates the overthrow of the Mongols, when the insurgent revolutionary leaders, by way of smuggling secret messages in mooncakes, called the people to revolt. The secret messages contained the time and date of the revolution because public meetings were forbidden. This led to the overthrow of the oppressive Mongol rulers and the liberation of the people*.
