We will pick you up at your hotel in Yichang around 9:00am and transfer you to your first stop - the Chinese Sturgeon Museum, which was set up in 1993 by the Chinese Sturgeon Research Institute aiming to preserve rare species of fish including the 27 species of sturgeon that still exist in the world. Chinese Sturgeon is strictly protected by the Chinese government, named a “national treasure” much like its mammalian counterpart, the giant panda.
After lunch you will visit the Peach Blossom Village, situated at Nanjin Pass. Its history could be traced back to 1st century BC. There are a lot of scenic areas and tourists can also enjoy peach and cherry blossoms in the spring, celestial fruit in the summer and sweet-scented osmanthus in the autumn. They are all well-known for their particular charm.
Our final stop is Sanyou Cave – Three Travelers’ Cave. The origin of this cave may be traced back to the Tang Dynasty. In 819, three Tang Dynasty poets, Bai Juyi, his brother Bai Xingjian and Yuan Zhen, met in Yichang and made an excursion to this site. At the end of the tour you will be transferred to your hotel, Yichang East Railway Station or cruise pier for your onward journey.
