 River Yangtze  Restaurant:

Fangweng Restaurant in River Yangtze  is located in China,  about 12km north of the city of Yichang, near Sanyou Cave. The restaurant is in the Happy Valley of the Xiling Gorge, an especially scenic stretch of cliffs, caves and park land located around the area where the Chang Jiang River flows into the Yangtze. The entrance to the Fangweng Restaurant is an apathetic grey brick building, but at the far end of a narrow concrete bridge, the restaurant caves into the cliff, the floor hanging several hundred feet above the ground.

Walking into the restaurant  in the River yangtze and down the steps, one will come to a natural “cave lobby”. Rightward, a 30-meter-long plank road has been built along the cliffside.  It leads to another natural cave, which has been transformed into a dining hall.

Part of the dining hall hangs out of the cave, where some dining tables are placed. This is a place sitting high in the air, where the flowing waters can be watched from above. From this end, customers can view the flowing water of Yangtze River. For the daredevils, a bungee jumping platform is nearby.
