More information about Yangtze River cruise:
Yangtze River is the longest river in China, about 6300-kilometer long, just behind Nile and Amazon river. The Yangtze river is normally divided into three parts: upstream, midstream and downstream. The first part - the upstream area is from the origin to Yichang, Hubei province; the second part - the midstream area is from Yichang to Jiujiang, Jiangxi province; the last part - the downstream area is from Jiujiang to the East China Sea ( entering the East Sea at Shanghai). Yangtze River cruise mainly refers to the cruise through the Three Gorges that are situated between Chongqing and Yichang in the upstream area. The Three Gorges are Qutang Gorge, Wu Gorge and Xiling Gorge, from upstream to downstream, which are the most beautiful section of the Yangtze River. Some cruises start from Wuhan to Chongqing or Chongqing to Wuhan. Some even start from Shanghai to Wuhan or Wuhan to Shanghai. But most travelers prefer the golden part of the Yangtze river - between Chongqing and Yichang.

Difference between the upstream and downstream cruise sailings:
Upstream in Yangtze River cruising refers to the sailing from Yichang ( or Wuhan ) to Chongqing while downstream in Yangtze River cruising means the sailing from Chongqing to Yichang or Wuhan.
As a matter of fact, there is no big difference between the two sailings - downstream and upstream. But they do have some small difference below:
1) Shore excursions: No differnce in land arrangement
2) Time: Upstream sailing takes one or two more days than going downstream for the same length of the cruise tour.
3) Price: The Price of upstream sailing is usually lower than that of downstream sailing for most of the cruise ships.

What are your recommended ships available we can choose for the yangtze cruise?
We recommend various ships for your selection. As for the 5 star cruise ships, we offer the cruise ships from Victoria series, Regal China, Dragons series, Oriental Royal Cruises to three star ships like Yuxiang and Isabella series. The higher rated cruise ships make you more comfortable on the ship. Many of the cruise ships are managed by the local ship companies, some also run by international ship companies, such as Regal China ,Victoria Cruises and Viking.

How about the dress we should have on the cruise ship?
Actually you don't have to prepare for any special dresses on the cruise ship. But when you want to have a shore excursion or go up the top ship deck for a good view, please take proper dresses to provent you from the big wind in winter and the scorching sun in summer.

What's the price of the cruise inclusive of?

The cruise ship ticket normally includes s accommodation ( two sharing one cabin ), full meals a day, shore excursions, entertainment, performance by the staff, daily activities, 24 hours room service, and port charges. But it excludes personal expenses, tips, drinks and wine, sauna, massage treatments and other personal expenses.

Your cruise ship ticket only guarantee you to have one bed on a cabin. If you prefer to have a single room on ship on your own, you are kindly requested to pay single supplement.

While you cruise on the Yangtze River, it doesn't mean you have to be on the ship from the beginning to the end. You have the chance to get on shore and have shore excursions. Each day you are scheduled to to have at least one shore excursion when you cruise along the Yangtze Rive. The shore excursioon of the three Gorges and Three Gorges Dam is a must. The shore excursions also cover the shore excursion to "Ghost City"-- Fengdu County, or Wanzhou or Shibaozhai; the shore excursion to Lesser Three Gorges or Shennong Stream.
