Why Jumbo Kingdom is special ?

The Jumbo Floating Restaurant together with the Tai Pak, are Hong Kong's iconic Floating Palaces. They have been in movies, are frequented by luminaries, movie stars and royalty, and are a common sight in tourist brochures and postcards. They have been around since the 1950's and are very much a part of the Hong Kong scene. Hong Kong's floating restaurants are multi-story structures, decorated in the traditional imperial Chinese style, that is lots of dragons, pagodas and red and gold decorations, the colors that traditionally represent the empire, prosperity and good fortune. The Jumbo is the larger of the two and is able to accommodate up to 2,000 diners. There is a walkway that connects it to the Tai Pak and both restaurants are managed by the same conglomerate and form Jumbo Kingdom, in itself a tourist attraction with a range of entertainment, shopping and of course dining attractions.

How to get to Jumbo Kingdom?

This is important. Many tourists have been fooled by the sampan taxis that ply the water around the Jumbo Kingdom offering to ferry you over to the restaurant for a bargain fare. You don’t need them. Jumbo Kingdom offers frequent and free shuttle free services to the restaurant from Aberdeen waterfront.

There are numerous buses from Central and Hong Kong Island to Aberdeen, some of the most useful include bus 70 or 75 from Exchange Square in Central.

It is a tourist trap but it’s also a lot of fun. - You can have cake-cutting. Its cost is 100$.

Visited last May. We saw it on our night harbour cruise and it looked amazing - all lit up with non-stop boat traffic delivering customers. It looked fun. We went for lunch the next day and it was entertaining just to get there, be seated and eat! Not the sort of place I would normally visit but curiosity got the better of me. The meal was ok - service hit and miss but we had so much fun just watching the frenetic activity of the waiting staff and customers - it was organized chaos! We actually really had a great lunch. Well worth a visit - I've never seen or been to anything like it.
