See the interior of China with a Yangtze Cruise
With the completion of the 3 Gorges Dam recently, China had created one of the great modern engineering marvels. The dam created higher waters back-stream and now the Yangtze River can support small ships which have opened up tourism and travel to the Ancient Cities of China. These new regions for exploration allow you to sail from as far as Shanghai to Chongqing! These cruise ships now feature cabins with balconies along with all the amenities you could ever ask for. This combination of luxurious living along with exciting itineraries consisting of educational tours, and entertainment are sure to satisfy even the most discriminating traveler! Along this trip you will get to visit the largest cities in China.
Beijing is the Capital of the People’s Republic of China. While on your tour be sure to take a Rickshaw tour through the city. Or make some new friends and get acquainted with the customs of China while having dinner with a local family. Dine at a restaurant that serves the local favorite: Peking duck. You can also visit a real life Kung-Fu school. Finish off a wonderful stay in Beijing by taking in an Opera. At Shanghai you can take in a World Famous Chinese Acrobat show. There is also a famous Jade Buddha Temple. Really there are a handful of different cruises down the Yangtze, but taking a cruise that can last for 18 days would be a great vacation.
