China & the Yangtze River Tour
Explore China when you cruise the Yangtze River, which has been China's main thoroughfare for commerce and culture for centuries. Before your Chinese river cruise begins, you'll stay in Beijing and tour the magnificent Forbidden City, Imperial palaces, and the incredible Great Wall. Then, travel to the metropolis of Shanghai for a glimpse of modern life as well as a look at artifacts from ancient dynasties.
You'll cruise through the Yangtze River valley, home to misty mountains, breathtaking gorges, canyons, bamboo groves, whirlpools, and lagoons. Along the Yangtze River's narrow, cliff-bound passages lie some of China's greatest cultural treasures—ancient tombs, shrines, and walls from before the time of Christ.
After your Yangtze River cruise, you'll discover China's World War II history in Chongqing, marvel at Xian's terra cotta army, and cruise Guilin's beautiful Li River. End your cruise of China with a stay in vibrant and bustling Hong Kong.
