Hello Wing,

We thoroughly enjoyed the Yangtze Cruise & the upgrade to Shangri-la suite was well worth the extra cost. The 3 Gorges Tribe visit was a highlight as were the visits to pandas, Wuhou Shrine & Renmin Park in Chengdu.

However, the 3 Gorges Dam visit was not enjoyable with guides screaming into microphones & in fact it is easier to see it from the road. The 10rmb to get ticket for golf cartride is only small amount & is during the tour so it should be included in the overall price.
