One of the best trips ever. I cruised the Yangtze River on a cruise in October and took the excursion to the Three Gorges walk and show. So glad I did as the day was fantastic. So much to see and photograph.

Over one million people had to be relocated as a result of the flooding by the dam . Empty houses and towns could be seen along the river. The people we talked to seemed happy for the most part, with their relocation and felt the new homes are much better than the old.

This is a must for every travelor to China with enough time to take a river steamer trip on the Yangtze River. It is an awe inspiring sight, no matter what time of day or year, or even weather conditions. The view changes minute by minute as the staemer approaches from either up or down straem and as the sun... More

The three Gorges are really spectacular, and the small boat used to visit the gorges made for an interesting trip, with plenty of photo opportunities. The guide, who has produced a photo book of the gorges, was simply spectacular.

Went through the locks at night. Very impressive. The side tours up the small gorges where great. Lots of local culture and information.

This is something which I see on movies only. I couldn't believe how beautiful the scenery of the three Gorges. I highly recommend this place to everybody who visit China. The place is well organized for the purpose of tourists. We had a chance to climb on the mountain to visit the castle. For those who can't climb, there is... More

I did the cruise through the 3 Gorges a few years ago, and I still found the scenery beautiful and the lock system amazing. We were lucky with the weather - not too hazy - so the gorges could be appreciated. We went through the locks at night and I stayed on deck throughout and was fascinated with it how... More

We did the trip from Yangching to chongging. The scenery was just beautiful. The highlight was going up through the loch system and our boat passengers stayed up till 11 just to watch the boat go through. Lots of great tours along the river and lots of amazing scenery along the way. We really enjoyed this.

...therefore you must! But I found the three gorges cruise rather dull. Some of the scenery is certainly beautiful, but by no means all of it. You'll see as many power stations and factories belching out fumes as you will rocky cliffs and forests. There just didn't seem enough to see to warrant three days sailing through terrain that looks... More
