We are planning a 14 days trip to China in June 2014, the cost is exceeding our budget. We are doing Beijing, Xian, Gulin, Li river cruise, Chengdu & Shanghai. Wanted some advice on whether we can give the Yangtze cruise a skip:
Against The Cruise
- 2 initial days of doing pretty much nothing. The cruise boats are not really five star not even a swimming pool on them. The initial attractions like Fengdu ghost city are just tourist traps
- We are vegetarians( no meat, chicken, fish or sea food) so food could be real issue on the cruise
- It is big dent in the pocket, cruise itself, the travel to & from the cruise location
For the Cruise
- The three gorges, passing through the lock & the dam itself
Looking for some advice, as am very confused.
Thank you for your help.
