The video shows a boat restaurant which looks like a five-storey building being pushed along the river by two barges. Due to regulation issues, the 121-metre-long and 26-metre-wide restaurant boat 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. Video of authorities removing the massive floating restaurant on the Yangtze River in Chongqing went viral on Saturday. “The other [restaurants] were dismantled earlier and this building was the last one removed out of the region,” an official said.
