Jumbo Kingdom is centered on the Jumbo and Tai Pak Floating Restaurants in Aberdeen Harbour. It is one of the world's largest floating restaurants and is an internationally renowned tourist attraction. As a Hong Kong icon and a premier tourism and fine-dining establishment, Jumbo has regularly been upgraded over the past 30 years. Jumbo recently had a refurbishment which not only gave the Jumbo a new look, but also transformed it into a theme park on the sea. Jumbo Kingdom is now a modern complex of dining, sightseeing and cultural attractions - a required stop in any tour of Hong Kong.

The typhoon shelter on the south side of Hong Kong Island is also a popular seafood dining spot and home to Jumbo Kingdom. Designed like a Chinese palace, it serves high-quality traditional Chinese and modern fusion dishes.
