Explore the Magical Yangtze River

When most North American travelers think of China, visions of the Great Wall and the Terracotta Warriors likely come to mind. But the third longest river in the world, the Yangtze River, is also a sight worth seeing while in Asia – and an ideal travel route.

The Yangtze River originates in the mountains of Tibet, in the world’s highest plateau, and flows east, covering almost 4,000 miles across China, flowing through the Qinghai, Sichuan, Chongqing, Hubei, Hunan, Yunnan, Jiangxi, Anhui, and Jiangsu provinces before it opens at the East China Sea in Shanghai. The Yangtze’s catchment covers 1/5 of China’s land area and accounts for 40% of China’s freshwater resources.

Surging by major tourist attractions throughout China and offering some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, travel on the Yangtze River takes visitors through the famous Three Gorges, past dense forests, and in the shadows of towering mountain cliffs rising dramatically from the river, a sight best appreciated from on the water.

Many cruise ships travel down the Yangtze and offer visitors a chance to see China from a new perspective, all while traveling in luxurious style. Travelers can appreciate a Yangtze River cruise for the ease, sumptuousness, and unique access to extraordinary scenery and attractions.
