If you wanted to see the Three Gorges of the Yangtze and experience the world famous Yangtze Dam in China there is no other way other than a river cruise. This tour put Yangtze River under a spot light. (Of course, still have other three amazing cities included in this tour.) The luxury cruise sails upstream through the Three Gorges from Yichang to Chongqing. During this totally relaxed voyage, you will capture as many marvelous natural and artificial scenes as you want. There were a variety of shore excursions. Each ashore brings you a different feeling and more knowledge about China. Simply fabulous! A river cruise is very smooth, you don't feel anything like you do on an ocean trip.
 
Discover Shanghai via visiting its major scenic spots. Then take an extravagant cruise to enjoy spectacular scenery of the Three Gorges. Onboard entertainments and ashore activities can both cheer you up. Fly to Xi’an from Chongqing as you end your cruise journey. There are gorgeous Terra Cotta Warriors and splendid Tang Dynasty Cultural show waiting for you. Climb Great Wall to be a genuine hero, stroll in Hutongs to encounter local Beijingers and sense their real life.
