On September 30 the Pan Pacific Vancouver will recognize one of the most important dates in the Chinese calendar, the Moon Festival, also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival.
This harvest festival dates back over 3,000 years and is also celebrated in Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines.
To celebrate this year’s festival, the Pan Pacific’s Sunday Brunch will take on an Asian theme, highlighted by specially created Canadian Moon Cakes, the must have delicacy of the Moon Festival.
On Sunday, a few feature items will include: Steelhead & Indian BBQ salmon, Alaskan snow crab legs, fresh Nigiri & maki sushi rolls, Chinese dim sum and my favorite – the Salmon Wellington served with citrus Hollandaise sauce.
Each year we often get asked, what goes into making a moon cake? Watch below as our Head Pastry Chef, Hans Pirhofer gives a demonstration on City TV’s Breakfast Television.

If you ask anyone who has stayed at the Pan Pacific Vancouver what their favorite features are about the Hotel – they will usually say it’s customer service (and almost always) will say the view.
This Summer, the Hotel renovated its newest room to offer one of the more spectacular views they have to offer – the Panoramic Harbourview Suite.
The Panoramic Harbourview offers 525-square-foot of spacious floor-to-ceiling windows so you can take in the 180 degree wraparound view of Burrard Inlet, Stanley Park and the Coastal Mountains. It is also located at the north end of the hotel (overlooking the Canada Place Sails), so you are assured of having an ideal spot for watching cruise ships arriving in port or departing into the sunset.
This guestroom features one king pillow top bed, luxurious bathroom amenities, marble bathroom, entertainment unit, 42” television, i-home docking station, dining room table for four, seating area with pull out sofa and working desk.
The Panoramic Harbourview can be connected to another king bedded room to become a two bedroom suite. So far – it’s been a fan favorite for those frequently visiting the Hotel.
If having a great view is high on your must-have list, I would also recommend:
These past couple of weeks of Summer in Vancouver have been quite the treat. When the weather is this good, it’s hard to find a city more naturally beautiful than Vancouver.
To show off a beautiful view of our city- I invited photographer John Biehler up to the roof of the Pan Pacific Vancouver to test out the wheels on his cool new Gigapan device. Gigapans are gigapixel panoramas – digital images with billions of pixels. They are massive panoramas with fascinating detail, all captured in the context of a single brilliant photo.
Here’s a look at the Gigapan John put together below. You can see Stanley Park, North Vancouver and the Coastal Mountains. Be sure to zoom in for SUPER-detail. (You can even see people walking along the sea walk!).
Tell us what you think of the Gigapan below! Where would you like to see a Gigapan shot taken in Vancouver?
