Tours specializes in many different Yangtze River Cruise itineraries,
both upstream and downstream and with either Thailand or Tibet.
The largest dam in the world is being built on
the Yangtze River. It will be a major feat of engineering and has
radically altered the lives of millions of Chinese. For many travelers,
myself included, the highlight of the Yangtze River Cruise is the trip
in smaller boats (skiffs) up the Daning River with its' Three Little
Gorges and the Shennong Stream - both have high cliffs, clear stream
water and abundant wild life (if you are lucky, you will see wild
monkeys or even migrating sturgeon!). The dam will raise the water level
of the Yangtze so that these areas will in effect become a lake.
We use a variety of different boats in our
tours, Regal China Cruises and the East King and East Queen. This is a wonderful way to
relax in China - and if you can spare the time, go upstream, relax - you
will even have time to read a book!
