What to expect at Yangtze River Cruise

Originating from the Tanggula Range in Qinghai Province in western China, the Yangtze River traverses eleven provinces and cities from west to east, including Qinghai, Tibet, Sichuan, Yunnan, Chongqing, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangxi, Anhui, Jiangsu and Shanghai. Finally it pours into the East China Sea at Shanghai. Acting as the largest water system in China, Yangtze River is historically, economically and culturally important to the country. Yangtze River has numerous tributaries including Min River, Han River, Jialing River, Gan River and Huangpu River etc. The Three Gorges Dam on the river is the largest dam project and hydro-electric power station in the world. Generally, people consider the Yangtze River a dividing line between North China and South China. Areas to the north and the south of the river have many differences in climate, scenery, economics, culture and folk customs.

Upon arrival at the Chongqing Chaotianmen Port, you can see many ships on the Yangtze river. Some of them are used for cargo transportation; some are intended for the river cruise passengers.
