Phoebe Gao - Our Top Yangtze Cruise Specialist

Yangtze Cruise Specialist


Hello, fellow adventurers! I'm Phoebe, your travel consultant at Yangtze River Cruises. Having grown up in a city nestled along the banks of the Yangtze River, I developed a profound connection to this majestic waterway. Not only the longest river in China, the Yangtze River boasts incredible natural wonders such as the Three Gorges, and its role in shaping Chinese civilization has transformed it into a brilliant destination for exploration.

Taking a 5-star Yangtze River cruise is not just the epitome of relaxation while exploring this magnificent river, it also promises a lavish holiday filled with vibrant experiences aboard. I am here to organize a memorable cruise trip for you.

Beyond the enchanting river journey, I highly recommend extending your cruise trip to other captivating destinations in China, such as Beijing, Xian, Shanghai, Guilin, Zhangjiajie, Yunnan, and more. With unwavering professionalism, boundless enthusiasm, and a strong sense of responsibility, I am eager to assist you in planning a remarkable journey through China. Let the adventures begin!

Why not take the advantages of Phoebe's travel experience to design a itinerary just for you, that suits your budget and interests. Her passion to serve you never fades away!

Yangtze Cruise Tips from Phoebe

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.

    Hi Phoebe,

    See my response below.

    Phoebe Gao was very responsive and helped me to join a spring Yangtze cruise from Yichang to Chongqing. She is very thorough and promptly and answered my numerous questions.

    The ship's staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the cruise director who was my English speaking contact. The buffet meals were delicious and had a good variety of choices.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this cruise and learned about the Yangtze River area culture, the magnificent dam and its ship locks. The tour company and cruise process are highly recommended.
