China's Mid-Autumn Festival is traditionally celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month. The festival is the second most important festival after the Spring Festival to Chinese people. In China, there are many spots which are symbolically related to the moon. Moon Hill is one of these famous spots in Yangshuo, Guilin. At various angles it resembles a new moon changing to a full moon. Elephant Trunk Hill in Guilin looks just like an elephant standing in the river and the arch of the trunk is like a round moon. Besides those, mountains and lakes are the preferred places to watch the moon at the festival. The Yellow Mountain and West Lake in Hangzhou are considered to be the best places. In Haining, Hangzhou Bay, people can watch the full-moon tidal bore on Mid-Autumn Day.
