While Traveling

What kind of sceneries could I expect from Yangtze River?

You will pass many cities during the visiting of upstream and downstream routes including Three Gorges and Three Gorges Dam which are two significant spots along Yangtze River. Different cruise may choose to have different shore excursions, but you will have several stops to Ghost City-Fengdu or Jade Snow Cave, Wanzhou or Shibaozhai, one day excursion to the Lesser Three Gorges or Shennong Stream, and one day at the Three Gorges Dam. There is a fact that all those itineraries are subject to change accord with the weather and water level conditions.



What is the difference between upstream and downstream sailings?

There are not big differences between upstream and downstream cruises except the travel time. Most cruise ships will cast anchors at the same docks and operate similar excursions to Fengdu Ghost City, White Emperor City, Lesser Three Gorges or Shennong Stream. But upstream cruises (5 days) cost one more day than the downstream cruises (4 days). So, usually, less tourists take the upstream cruises in order to save time,but this kind of choice can also take the advantages of escaping from the crowed during travel peak season.



What does your price of the cruise include?

Included: Shipboard Accommodations, Meals, Shore Excursions, Onboard Entertainment, 24-Hour Room Service, and all Port Charges are all included in the tour package. Not Included: Personal Expenses, Gratuities, Alcoholic Beverages, Sauna/Massage Treatments, and Specialty Restaurants are not included in the tour package. Additional Information: Due to the fuel charges raised up continuously, some major cruise company announce that they will impose the surcharge of fuel from May, 2011. All the passengers have to pay this expenditure at CNY150.00 net per person upon check-in at the reception. You'd better read the guide book before enjoying the services provided since different cruises have different consumption standards.



What are the dress requirements on a Yangtze River cruise?

There is no special requirement during boarding cruise, but comfortable long-sleeved shirt and casual shoes are recommendable since lots of sightseeings involved with steps and damp caves.



What kind equipments provided on ships?

All the suites and cabins are well decorated with twin or king-sized bed, remote-controlled satellite color TV, central air conditioning, in-cabin IDD, and a private bathroom with hair-dryer and phone.



Is December a good season for travel along Yangtze River?
