Yangtze Cruise Tips from Samantha

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.

    Good morning Samantha. FYI, we've checked in, checked through security and waiting to board the flight to Chongqing. Thanks again for your help

    -April 11, 2024-

    Thanks Samantha. We have a very good day. We are now safe on board and well fed.

    -April 16, 2024-

    Good morning Samantha. Yes we are enjoying the cruise, learning a lot about Chinese culture and cuisine. The weather however, is not cooperating. It's been cloudy, windy, cool and wet, not good for picture taking.

    -April 17, 2024-

    Weather was very bad in Jiujiang yesterday, so we had a very short excursion and couldn't see the real face of Lushan. Then it got worst as the ship couldn't set sail until this morning and missed Chizhou and Mount Jiuhua entirely. But it's what it is. No body can control the weather.

    -April 21, 2024-

    Sorry for the late reply. Sunrise was very nice and checked us into a nice room at 8:30 am. It's been a while since we were in Shanghai, and it is a wonderful, clean city that's very vibrant.

    It has been sunny and warm the last four days.
