The 400 mile stretch of Yangtze River between Chongqing and Yichang provides the best luxury cruising in China. Sleep in comfortable cabins with private showers and enjoy freshly prepared meals, nightly cultural shows and local activities, such as calligraphy, folk dancing, cooking lessons and Taichi.
Highlights include the 400 year old Shibao Zhai monastery, which sits on what was once a hillside, but is now an island and the sacred Ghost City of Fengdu, a mountaintop complex dedicated to the afterworld and full of weird and wonderful tombs and statues. Despite its rather gloomy sounding name, it is actually a rather uplifting and insightful experience. The star attraction here though is the dramatic landscape as you reach the steep verdant walls of the famous Three Gorges, offering magnificent views and the chance to spot wild monkeys and giant sturgeon fish. Just before reaching Yichang is the Three Gorges Dam, one of the world's most impressive feats of engineering, the ship passes through a series of locks, lowering itself around 600 metres.
