Tours > China Tour >  Yangtze River Cruise

05 DAYS YANGTZE CRUISE
Trip code: CN-YRC

 
 The Yangtze River is the longest in China and third longest in the world. To the Chinese it means far more than that - it is the mother river of the nation. This cruise takes you through the heart of China - its history and local life as you enjoy the famous scenery of the Three Gorges. Also, marvel at the great man-made wonder - Three Gorges Dam.

Day 01ARRIVE CHONGQING
Fly to Chongqing.
Upon arrival, met & make an excursion to the Buddhist Grotto of Dazu (about 2½ hours drive away). This is rated alongside other great Buddhist cave sculpture like the one in Dunhuang. The stone carvings there are unparalleled works of art in the world and were included by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 1999.
Returning to Chongqing, spend some time along Ciqikou Old Street lined with old tea houses, temples, shops. Have a Chongqing Hot Pot before boarding your cruise Victoria or East King/Queen tonight.
(Lunch, Dinner included)

Day 02YANGTZE CRUISE
Enjoy the morning cruising and after lunch, we visit Fengdu. The local residents of Fengdu believed that the town is populated by ghosts. The plethora of demon-decorated temples, buildings, and statues in this river town attest to their beliefs and has earned it the moniker "City of Devils" - the carved facades are truly fascinating.
Note: The cruise itinerary is subject to change according to ship company's adjustment, weather situation and similar without prior notice.
(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner included)

Day 03YANGTZE CRUISE

Many described the small gorges to be more spectacular the 3 main gorges. Tonight, we will sail past the western section of Xiling Gorge (the longest of the 3 gorges) and cross 3 gorges dam ship lock.
(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner included)
