Hong Kong icon hits rock bottom



Hong Kong’s famous Jumbo floating restaurant is no more.

The restaurant - shuttered through the Covid pandemic - sank in the South China Sea while being towed to a new location.

The Jumbo had been a famous landmark at Aberdeen Harbour in Hong Kong since 1971. Noted past guests include the Queen, President Jimmy Carter, Tom Cruise and Richard Branson.

It mysteriously sank near the Paracel Islands due to "adverse conditions" owner Aberdeen Restaurant Enterprises said.

The massive three-storey vessel had an exterior styled after a Chinese imperial palace.
