A major highlight of our Yangtze river cruise (4 nights) to cruise through Xiling Gorge, the longest and deepest of the 3 Gorges; Wu Gorge and Qutang Gorge (the shortest and narrowest of the 3 Gorges). Views on the top open air boat deck were fantastic as the weather was good throughout our 3 days of cruising.

Old hands will say that the 3 gorges is not as good as it was before the dam was built, I didn't see it then but I thought it was amazing now. The fact that it is a working river adds to its attraction and seeing the barges and other working boats pass is so interesting. ell worth a visit.

Don't get me wrong the river cruise is lovely and the scenary is breathtaking, The Three Gorges will give you lovely pictures and memories, but the Yangzi explorer vessels are in need of a total refurbishment. The first room we where given had wet carpets and smelt of foist, the 2nd my partner opened the wardrobe and the door fell... More

While I understand that many villages and homes were destroyed when the dam went in, the result of the Three Gorges is majestic and the best part of a Yangtze River Cruise. Go atop your boat for the best view.

Breath taking spectacular views of the 3 gorges.the Yangtze river comes to 3 narrow slits in the downstream where the mountains are exceptionally high and creat these spectacular gorges.very windy .the day we were there it was misty and cloudy.lots of towns to pass before we saw the gorges.lots if boat traffic as well.

Cruising the Yangtze is a must if visiting China, a four night cruise is the best, hard to get good photos as very hazy with the bad pollution

One of the sights you have to see in China. having seen it many times over the years I can say that the dam project has not had that much effect on the scenery. Can only be seen by boat either on a long cruise or sightseeing boat. rember the first gorge is before the new dam. Ther are also... More

Went on a three night cruise down the Yangzi River. Very relaxing and calm. Worth doing if you get the chance. You get to stop off a various attractions along the way.
