A 5-Story Building Was Spotted Cruising Along A River

Residents in Chongqing looked out their window to see a five-story building heading up the Yangtze.

It turns out that the building is a floating restaurant which was moved along a river in Chongqing City in southern China. Due to regulation issues, the 121-metre-long and 26-metre-wide restaurant had to relocate and the two barges helped move it downstream.

Chongqing maritime authorities said floating restaurants had been banned in the region over pollution issues. “The other [restaurants] were dismantled earlier and this building was the last one removed out of the region,” an official said.
