JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi box design this year was inspired by the Year of the OX – with the folk tale of Vietnamese Trung Thu celebration imprinted in Giấy Dó (traditional paper of Vietnam) together with the images of Koi fish and Chrysanthemum flowers embroidered elegantly, reminding us of nostalgic childhood memories and accompanied by complimentary tea or wine.

Mooncakes (also known as “Banh Trung Thu” in Vietnam) are an inseparable part of the Mid-Autumn Festival (“Tet Trung Thu”), which is celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar. These tasty treats can be enjoyed as a delightful daytime snack with loved ones, accompanied by a pot of tea, or presented as an auspicious gift.
