One of the most memorable experiences in China is travelling the majestic Three Gorges by boat. Most visitors to China spend their time visiting the country's big cities, but for those who want a truly unique adventure, a Yangtze River Cruise through the Three Gorges can be an experience of a lifetime.

In addition to the natural scenery, there are many sights along the route of the Yangtze River. One of the most iconic destinations is the Shibao Pagoda, a 200-meter tall fortress built into the side of a cliff hanging over the river. Visitors also get the chance to visit the infamous Three Gorges Dam and sail through the ship locks.

A wide variety of cruise companies are on offer, with many services such as shops, massages, and health spas. On board accommodations range from standard rooms to luxury suites. Meals are all buffet style featuring international cuisine. There will also be on board activities to enjoy such as morning Taichi, evening karaoke, and a crew talent show.

Yangtze River Cruises are now offered by the China Guide and can be combined with other Chinese cities. See for details or email book[at] to start planning your cruise today.
