Yangtze River 5 Day Cruise

Day 1: Departure from Yichang

We'll meet at 9 pm at Yichang Port, where we'll board the cruise ship we'll be staying on for the next 5 days. As you settle into your cabins, we'll set sail along the waters of the Yangtze River away from Yichang, the economic centre of the Hubei Province

Day 2: Three Gorges Dam and Xiling Gorge

In the morning, we'll enjoy a delicious breakfast aboard the ship and arrive in Sandouping where we'll cross the locks of the Three Gorges Dam. Did you know that it is the largest dam in the world? 

We'll then leave this area to head to Xiling, the longest and deepest part of the Three Gorges. It is almost 66 kilometres long! Also, if the river is calm, in the afternoon we'll visit the tribe of the Three Gorges. In this fascinating place, we'll discover how the inhabitants of the region live.

Day 3: Wu and Qutang Gorges

After enjoying breakfast on the ship, we'll hop into a typical Chinese boat and head to Goddess Stream, one of the most impressive areas of the river. 

Later, we'll explore the Wu Gorge, where the mountains and cliffs will captivate us. From there we'll head to the Qutang Gorge, the narrowest part of the Yangtze River Gorges!

Then we'll return to the ship and late in the afternoon, you'll get the chance to make a stop to visit White Emperor City, an ancient city overlooking the western end of the Qutang Gorge. 

Day 4: Shibaozhai or Fengdu

We'll enjoy a delicious breakfast on board and, depending on the river conditions, we'll visit Shibaozhai or Fengdu. If we go to Shibaozhai, we'll see its famous wooden temple. Did you know they call it "pearl upon the river"? 

The Fengdu Ghost City, located on the north bank of the Yangtze River, is a very unique place. We'll admire its demon sculptures, which were built on Mingshan Hill over 2,000 years ago.

We'll end the day with dinner on the ship and head back to our cabins to rest until the next day.

Our Yangtze River cruise will end at the port of Chongqing at around 8 am.


The prices displayed are per person in a double cabin.
