Last Updated on 2018-08-24 , 8:50 pm

It’s now one of the best months of the year – the Mid-Autumn Festival is here soon. And you know what that means right? All sorts of mooncakes to tempt your tastebuds!

The sad thing is, though, that it costs so much to get yourself a one-of-a-kind mooncake. It’s irrelevant as to whether you get one in a 5-star hotel or if it’s a specialty brand; your money is going to fly either way.

But what if you could get better, cheaper ones? All you need to do is go into JB! Here are 9 places that offer you really good mooncakes in the country next door.

Season Confectionary and Bakery
