Experience the temples, landmarks, cities, and nature of China with a cruise along the River Yangtze. China has much to offer to the discerning traveller, and a river cruise provides the ideal platform from which to explore this vast nation. Most river cruises embark in Chongqing and sail to Shanghai or vice versa, while selected itineraries will also provide pre-cruise land tours to places including Beijing, Xian, and Guilin.
One of the highlights of this journey is undoubtedly the Three Gorges – a magnificent 150-mile scenic stretch of the Yangtze which flows through spectacular limestone ridges, canyons, and cliffs. You will also be able to delve into the history of China by venturing back to 400BC in Wuhan, where ancient bronze bells and a number of relics can be found on display. Upon arrival in Shibaozhai, you can admire the vibrant red 12-story pavilion of Shibaozhai Temple, which was built in 1650 on the banks of the Yangtze.
