Yangtze Cruise Port Change in Chongqing for Special Events

During special events, port would be changed to Fengdu Port (丰都港) in Fengdu County for embarkation and disembarkation. And the marine bureau will inform the news of port change in Chongqing about 1 day in advance. Then, we will inform you once we get the notice!

Fengdu Port is about 150km away from Chongqing downtown, however, travelers needn’t worry about the transportation between Fengdu and Chonqing, as the cruise companies will take the responsibility to arrange comfortable vehicle to transfer you between Chongqing downtown and Fengdu (Fuling for Yangtze Explorer visitors).

Hello Julie,

Thank you for the message! If you are going to transfer to Chongqing North Railway Station from Chongqing Chaotianmen Port, you can choose local taxi after you disembark, and it usually needs about 40 minutes and about 30RMB. As you will arrive at Chongqing Port at 9:00a.m., to get on your train in time, we suggest you arrange your train to Chengdu departing from Chongqing after 11:30 a.m. So you can have enough time for the transfer and ticketing and checking procedures.

Besides, you could also book our local transfer service to avoid waiting for the hard-to-get taxies among many guests after getting off the cruise and also to save your time. Furthermore, if you are interested, you can choose our Chengdu tour to visit all the best highlights including the chubby giant pandas with the comfortable company of our professional travel guide and driver.

Wish you a great trip in Chengdu and China!
