A video of a five-storey "building" floating down the Yangtze River in southwest China has gone viral on social media again, leaving many astonished. The video which shows a building cruising along the river in 2018 was tweeted again by Twitter user @Rainmaker1973.
"Things that happen in China. A five-story ‘building’ was spotted cruising along the Yangtze River back in November 2018," the user wrote.
According to a CGTN report, the ‘building" in question, was, in reality, a floating restaurant and authorities had to relocate it due to a change in policy. The floating restaurant had to reportedly be tugged by boats to take it to its new location.
