Just finished a three night Yangtze river cruise from Chongqing to Yichang. We did this during the flood season which has certain significant impacts on the journey. First, the river is very muddy because of all the rainwater coming down the river. Second, the authorities lower the river level significantly (about 30 meters) to accommodate the water that will be... More

As a tour group we enjoyed a 4 hour boat cruise through the Three Gorges. It was very picturesque and relaxing. The boat docks were worth going through and the general economics of the area is worth seeing. Must do if you are in the area. Glad we only did a one day tour though.

Very impressive gorges but it was so wet and smoggy that we could barely see the scenery. Very peaceful

The Three Gorges is the most scenic stretch of the Yangtze between Yichang, where our five-day cruise began, and Chongqing, where it ended. No doubt the ideal time to see it was before the river was dammed, but rising waters notwithstanding, the area is still majestic, with its rocky cliffs and towering peaks. The small river boats that carried tourists... More

A must see for every traveler to Yichang. Walkway are amazing. Allow at least a day for this trip. Ferry trip across give a good aspect of the river and its shore buildings. Well worth the money

Went here as part of a 3 night cruise of the valley and dam. Was a great trip and saw some great places along the gorges. The biggest thought however was what used to be below the water level before they built the dam.

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
