The renowned Three Gorges - one of the natural wonders of the world - are just 20 hours sailing away, so Chongqing is the start or end point for most Yangtze River cruises. There are more than 100 houseboats suitable for both foreign and home tourists. Chongqing features convenient water, land, and air transport facilities.

Yichang is not a new port along Yangtze. For centuries, steamers can travel as far as Yichang. Yichang is where the middle and upper reaches of the Yangtze River are divided. Thanks to its advantageous geographic location, Yichang has been defined as a distributing center, an important trading port and a transportation hub along the Yangtze river linking west Hubei and east Sichuan since ancient times. For a very long time, it has been renown as ‘Gateway to the Three Gorges’, ’Throat between Sichuan and Hubei’. Today, Yichang remains a brisk river port of China, controlling the access to Chongqing to its southwest.
Wuhan locates in the central part of China, where the Yangtze River, the third biggest in the world meets its biggest tributary the Han River.

The most historic significant one is Nanjing which boasts some of China’s most advanced technology and a prestigious university. The city stands as a symbol of Chinese strength and self-sufficiency, a monument of the people on their great river. There are a lot of tourists start or end their trip in Nanjing.

Shanghai is known as the gateway to the Yangzte, spanning the Huangpu tributary just south of the river’s mouth. As China’s largest metropolis, Shanghai is an active hub of river commerce with thousands of boats crowding its harbor. Towering commercial ships stand out against the industrial shores, and countless ‘junks’, weather and sea-worn vessels topped with browning quilted sails, navigate the congested waterways. You can start or end your Yangtze cruise from Shanghai.
