Days A city, a cruise and an important religious site
The Yangtze is one of the great rivers of the world and among the most popular China travel tours. Its beauty peaks around the misty mountains and cliffs of the famous gorges - Qutang, Wu and Xiling. The Three Gorges Dam, a massive hydroelectric project that defies belief, adds another dimension to the experience. Visit the site and then witness the marvel of the huge locks that lift each ship past the dam for a smooth passage onwards. This is one of the few tours of Asia that involve river cruising in China.
