Jumbo Floating Restaurant
Perhaps my most famous neighbor in the harbour is Jumbo, the floating restaurant, reachable only by small boat.
Jumbo's lights twinkle on as the sun sets, and are visible from all parts of the Aberdeen Southern Typhoon Shelter throughout the evening.
The typhoon shelter has a long tradition of dining on boats, and even a unique "typhoon shelter style" cuisine. Most of this has moved to shore over the recent years.
Jumbo remains, as a landmark, an attraction for tourists, and as a home for popular restaurants offering both formal traditional Chinese and casual Western atmospheres.
