China rivers

Cruises to China rivers

From the point of view of geography China river cruises mostly concentrate on the Yangtze that is the longest waterway in the region. From the source in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau to the mouth in the East China Sea it stretches along 3,915 miles or 6,300 kilometres and conceptually divides the country into the northern and southern parts. Due to important role of this water artery in the lives of common people, the river shore turns out to be the center of economic and cultural events of different kinds. So a lot of sights, both historical and natural, can be found here. According to statistical info, it is one of the reasons why China rivers cruises prove to be a popular travel destination for customers from all over the world almost in all seasons of the year. Another argument people put forward when they make a choice in favor of this holiday option is that the region is not much explored yet as the cruise industry as such began to develop in the country in the late 1970s.


The navigation period in China usually starts in March/April and comes to its logical end in October/November. According to reviews of travelers, spring and fall months turn out to be the most comfortable for spending a vacation in this country as the weather is neither too hot nor cold. Even more attractive these periods of time seem if you consider the price of cruises as the deals for ‘shoulder seasons’ are usually cheaper than those for summer. This is your perfect chance to save some money. However, if you go on a cruise in June, July or August you may be sure that the weather will be stable as it rarely rains in this time so you will protect yourself from unpredictable surprises and see all the sights in nice conditions.


Most cruise itineraries for China rivers lay between Chongqing and Yichang and include the Gorges region. The exact list of places you will be able to visit depends on the travel company you choose. It may be Century Cruises, Avalon Waterways, Uniworld, Tauck and some others. Still no matter what cruise line you prefer you will most likely see such tourist attractions as Shibaozhai Temple, the Ghost City in Fengdu, Chongqing Zoo, Hubei Provincial Museum and, of course, the Three Gorges Dam that is one of the largest hydroelectric power stations on our planet. Besides, you will have an opportunity to taste Chinese cuisine, e. g. Peking duck, visit numerous pagodas, jade and silk carpet factories, amazing acrobatic shows and maybe even an opera house.
