The Yangtze River has been the lifeline of China for millennia. It was on the river banks that some of the earliest Chinese cultures existed; ever since it’s been essential for agriculture, for transportation and for the development of the economy. Cruising the mighty Yangtze slows down to pace of your journey and helps you see China from a new perspective. All you have to do is sit back and admire the steady flow of history and heritage that survives along the river banks as you wind your way through impressive gorges and cliffs. The magnificent Three Gorges are the highlight – rising dramatically from the steadily flowing waters, each bend in the river offers a new breathtaking panorama.
