Aberdeen’s Jumbo Floating Restaurant
In the south west part of Hong Kong Island are the Aberdeen Typhoon Shelters and the famous Jumbo Floating Restaurant. It is also home of the Aberdeen Harbour Club.

Here is a satellite image, courtesy of Google, of the restaurant in the bottom left and the marina and dock to the right. This area is known as the Aberdeen Promenade.
There are actually two restaurants. On the bottom is the Jumbo and above is the Tai Pak which serves western food.

Our guide recommended a tour around the restaurant to see the back before deciding to eat there. Imagine the view from the apartment if you were overlooking the restaurant on the water. Maybe the mountain view would be better.
