Yangtze Cruise Tips from Lyn

  1. When is the best time to have a Yangtze River cruise?

    The "best" depends on which you are more concerned about, weather or price. To most visitors,the bestRed Leaves in Yangtze River Autumnseasons for Yangtze Cruise should be the Spring and Autumn, namely, April to June and September to November when the weather is cool and comfortable, neither cold nor hot.

  2. Which cruise line should I choose?

    There are different cruise lines to cater different customer demands. Cruising between Chongqing and Wuhan on deluxe ships is the most popular for tourists.

  3. Should I take a upstream or downstream cruise?

    Upstream means sailing from lower part of river to the up to the higher part of the river.Less cost, and it usually costs 10%-30% lower than that of downstream and more time onboard for leisure activities, Chinese folk customs, etc. Downstream mean sailing from higher part of the river to the lower part of the river. There is enough time to enjoy the shore excursions because all scenic sites are arranged in the daytime.

  4. How long is the cruise vacartion?

    You cruise vacation duration is decided by the ship and itinerary you have chosen and booked.

    Dear Lyn,

    good evening from Italy!

    Sadly our China trip is now over and we will surely miss the days cruising on the Yangtze river. We are already recommending to our friends a cruise on the Yangtze, if they ever decide to travel to China and stay assured that we are also recommending them to book it on yangtze-river-cruises.com.

    Thank you again for your support and organisation. Everything went just perfectly smooth: from the pick up at the airport, the cruise and all the transfers.

    Best wishes

    Davide and Stefano

    Hello Lyn !

    I returned to Canada just yesterday after a wonderful 3 week journey through China and Mongolia.

    I must say that the highlight of the whole trip was the 4-day-3-night cruise down the Yangtze ! The 'Century Sun' is a very modern cruise ship that provides an excellent level of service and comfort for a relatively modest cost. There was a good mix of western travellers, tour groups and Chinese passengers on board the ship so it was also a very good 'multi-cultural' travel experience as well. All the officers and crew on the ship worked very hard to make sure that every passenger enjoyed their 4 days on the Yangtse: the cabins were extremely comfortable and well appointed, the ship was kept spotlessly clean, the buffet meals were really exceptional and the shore excursions and side-trips only added to the overall excellence of the cruise. It was an outstanding travel experience and I would have no hesitation in recommending you, Tibet Discovery or Yangtse-River-Cruises to anyone.

    It was unfortunate that my original plan to travel to Tibet had to be cancelled but the cruise down the Yangtse more than made up for that initial disappointment.

    I would like to record my appreciation for the very efficient and professional manner in which (you) have handled all aspects of my booking and ticketing. You are a fine ambassador for your company and deserve every credit for providing a first-class level of service and complete customer satisfaction. I am very grateful.

    With all good wishes

    Dear Mrs. Lyn Wang,

    Since two weeks I am back home and I would like to let you know that everything regarding your organization of my Yangtze-River-Cruise, worked out perfectly!

    I was so happy that you had organised two guides to pick me up in Yichang and later in Chongqing! Without them I really would have had some complications....

    Especially Mr. David in Chongqing was very nice. I really enjoyed the cruise very much, and of course, later on Shanghai as well.

    I would like to thank you once again for your contribution to make my trip an unforgettable and very intresting experience!

    Best wishes and kindest regards,

    Dear Ms. Lyn Wang,

    back in Germany I can tell you that all around the cruise worked well.

    The two guides were friendly and helpful.

    Kind regards

    Hi dear Lyn,

    Yes, we returned from China yesterday afternoon with lots of precious memories about your beautiful country and wonderful people.

    I am going to depart to Cuba tonight, and my wife is flying to USA in a few days. So, you can expect from me more on my return to Istanbul after September 9th. I have lots to tell you - beautiful things - and I will of course share pictures and information about our days there. I will also ask your Tripadvisor - or any - link so that I can write my impressions of China and this particular tour there.

    For the time being, I and my wife would like to express our thanks to you and your company and all involved in making our trip so enjoyable and comfortable.

    You will hear from me in the second half of September.

    All my best.

    Hi Lyn

    I have just returned to Australia after my cruise on the Paragon boat and would like to write a review about our cruise could you please give me the links to do this. It was a great cruise and the crew were very friendly and helpful, especially the cruise manager Leo.

    Hi Lyn

    Now back home in NZ

    The tickets worked out fine when I went to the station

    We had a great time in China, apart from too many steps.

    The cruise was good and gave use some time to relax.

    Thanks for all your help

    Hi Lyn,

    I am fine and thanks for connecting. Our trip and cruise went really nice! all instructions provided went good ...

    I will defiantly recommend your company and yourself to my friends

    Our trip to China was great and we as family were very happy with the trip.

    Dear Lyn,

    Thank you Lyn for all your help.

    There are my feedbacks

    1.How about your tour arrangements?

    Very clear and straightforward

    2. Are you willing to recommend our service to those who would like to come to China?


    3. Your general opinion on us?

    Great service. Lyn was helpful and prompt in replying at every point.

    4. What will be your suggestions regarding how to improve our services?

    The only difficulty we had was getting to the dock from the train station. Perhaps a clearer message about what is involved, dealing with taxi drivers, etc, would be good.

    Hi Lyn!

    Then we are back in Norway after 3 weeks in China. We had a great time also on the cruise. I have recommended you at tripadvisor already.(-:

    I think your service was excellent, everything went smoothly.

    The cruise was really fun, even with bad weather. The cruise personell took very good care of us, we felt really welcome. We were only 3 weastern guest at the ship, and even if I and my husband managed without talking to any other guest, it would be my advice for you to give some information (if you can) about the guest profiles on the boat to other western clients.

    I will absolutely recommend your services to everybody!

    Thank you!

    Best regards,

    Hi Lyn,

    Everything went well on the cruise. I am glad we took the time to do that trip between busy days in Shanghai, Xi'an and Beijing. The cruise was as expected and we had no problems. Food was good, ship was very clean, service was good, tours from ship were good, etc.

    The taxi driver who took us from the airport to the dock in Chongqing did not know where he was going but stopped to get directions. After the cruise we stayed at the Crown Plaza in Yichang and flew to Beijing the next day. No problems.

    You were most helpful and I would certainly recommend you to others.

    Hi Lyn

    Thank you for email. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip, and I will reply to your email properly and answer your questions when I am home in NZ and have access to my computer at the weekend.

    Kind regards

    Sorry for my late reply.

    My dad got sick, he is getting better now.

    I have everything on a journal, but all in Dutch, maybe you can translate it via bing.com/translate?

    I am almost finished with the online page and then I will send you the link, also included some pictures.

    We are so happy with you and the services.

    We would definitely recommend you and/or your office to others.

    On the below 4 question I will come back later to you.

    Thank you for everything and hope we see again in the future.


    Rosalie and family.

    Booking for cruise was fine.

    Information that would be useful to us will be the upgrade info that was offered and optional dinner on first nite when no included.

    We did end up upgrading to higher floor and also the meal package. However as we only knew about the package and cost on checkin, there was limited options for the room /floor selection.

    They were very nice to take care of us when we told them we were celebrating our 18th anniversary. They sent a cake to our table at dinner - unexpected surprise and lovely gesture. When we cruise in the US, usually we get wine at table. Since our upgraded meal included wine, the cake was very nice as we could share with other guests and make new friends.

    Yes, I would recommend your service to our friends traveling to China.

    Sorry for delay in getting back to  you.

    We had a fantastic trip. Both guides in Yichang and Chongqing were excellent. Good knowledge of their cities. 

    I really appreciate the great service you provided in making all our arrangements. It made our travel very simple

    The staff on the Century Sun did an excellent job. 

    We certainly will  make use of your agency when we return to China for another vacation trip.
