Yangtze & Three Gorges
About Yangtze & Three Gorges
Neatly dividing China into north and south, the 6340km-long Yangtze River is the country's longest river and the third largest in the world after the Nile and Amazon rivers. Winding its way through eleven very different provinces, the Yangtze originates in the western province of Qinghai characterised by the high-altitude Tibetan Plateau and finally pours into the East China Sea at Shanghai. As China's largest water system, the Yangtze and its tributaries are of great historical, economical and cultural importance and one of the best way to enjoy the river and its stunning scenery is by cruise.Read More
