    We are 15 of us who are booked through Gate 1 Travel from USA. However, all 15 of us are of Indian origin. And majority of us are vegetarian. Would it be possible to get at some Indian style veg food during our stay with you? We will be boarding on 4th Sept. from Yichang to Chongqing. Please say Yes, you will get a lot of blessings.

    Is there any kind of dress code for the dinning room at night?
    2017-03-30 19:00
    Hello Kathleen,

    Thanks for your question. Usually dressing code for dining during night is not very formal. Such as, suite, tie, evening dress, etc. are not strictly required. You can dress as comfortable as possible to enjoy your cruise tour, but too casual clothes like jeans, round-neck shirts, shorts, slipperier, and so forth are better to avoid.

    Wish you an enjoyable trip on the Yangtze River!
