A unbelievable trip. We cruised Four Nights and Five days from Yichang to Chongqing which was up river. On this trip, pay the extra $20 for meals to be eaten in the ships restaurant. It's well worth it. Although you pass many big cities, remember you are also in the bush. So be prepared to climb many stairs, and a... More

Peaceful and good break from city centre. Try the oxygen bar and climb all the way up to get a magnificent view of the waterfall.

We cruised here as part of our Sinorama tour of China aboard the Century Diamond. The cruise was restful and we were well fed. It's a wonderful journey that reminded me of cruising in Alaska, only with warmer weather. So much was flooded with the dam project, and now in certain spots there is a lot of construction along the... More

Our 4 night cruise was part of a Gate 1 tour on the Century Sun. We began with a night on board while docked at Yichang, which means we were heading upriver. The other option is to begin in Chongqing, which would have less engine noise. Stock up at the liquor store on the dock at Yichang if you want... More

we enjoyed the views of the Yangtze from Yichang to Chongqing for 4 nts. In order we passed through Xiling Gorge, the largest of the three, Wu Gorge and Qutang Gorge. our best views were with Xiling Gorge largely due to the weather. All of them are gorgeous and definitely worth at least a visit if you have enough time... More

The first of the three gorges is the most inspiring. Although the tributaries is wonderful. Shennong Stream

The views are just mind blowing but you need to have sunny days to enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the cliffs and the river.

Some of our best and most relaxing days in China were spent in the absolutely stunning Three Gorges along the Yangtze River. The scenery of the gorges has changed a bit since the dam was built: a little less dramatic but still stunning nonetheless and a worthwhile experience while in China. We took a Victoria cruise and were very pleased... More

We travelled the 3 gorges with Viking River Cruises. I have to say that whilst the actual gorges were stunning, no one quite prepared me for how busy the Yangtze river actually is! Hundreds of very large barges carrying 1000s of tons of quarry materials back and forth, car transporters, wood, metal, in fact you name it! The pollution does... More

Our Viking tour spent 5 nights on the Yangtze, sailing from Chongqing to Wuhan. We sailed through the stunning Three Gorges & then joined small sailing boats to sail The Lesser Three Gorges. A rather mystical area.
