Yangtze Cruise Tips from Evelyn

The "best" depends on what you are more concerned about, weather or price. To most visitors,the best best time for natural scenery 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. For the biggest discount, winter period, usually December to the next January or early February are top reccommended. Also, July to August for summer vacation also offer some discounts for families with student children.

There are different cruise lines to cater different customer demands. Cruise between Chongqing and Yichang is the most classic and golden route to appreciate the famous Three Gorges view. Besides, if interested in discovering more nature, culture, history and economy in cities along the Yangtze, cruising between Shanghai and Chongqing, Shanghai and Wuhan, Chongqing and Wuhan, etc. are recommended for special savory. (note: cruise routes are changed every year.)

Upstream means sailing from lower part of river to the up to the higher part of the river. It usually takes one more day and spares more time onboard for leisure activities, lectures, 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. Besides, upstream cruise prices may be a little higher than that of the downstream cruise for some companies.

You cruise vacation duration usually is about 4 to 5 days for the Chongqing Yichang sailing route, which is decided by the ship and itinerary you have chosen and booked. For the longer Chongqing Shanghai cruise route, it usually needs 11 to 15 days for different ships.

    Dear Evelyn,

    We are having a wonderful time onboard the ship. Even though the ship is delayed for one day due to weather, the cruise company managed it so well that we're able to complete the original itinerary. That's a great achievement.

    The staff onboard are excellent, I think it's a 6-star service.

    Yes, the tour to Qu Yuan's hometown is a wonderful surprise for my wife especially and myself, it's like a bonus :-)

    Hope you have a nice day.

    Feedback to China Yangtze Tour Arranged by Evelyn Ma of China Discovery:

    Yangtze River Cruise Tour

    Century Oasis - it's new and we were given 3rd Level, but only dine in one restaurant.

    Still it's good. Allan, the Cruise manager took good care of us as we were the only few that requires English guides.

    The Fengyansanguo show is super n spectacular. Very glad to have seen it. Thanks.
