The rainy season of Yangtze River during July and August could sometimes cause floods. However many people still love to cruise the Yangtze River during the time for the low-season prices and the magnificent water view.
Yangtze River is world renowned for its magnificent river stretches, mountains, cliffs, as well as its historic and modern man-made marvels. But, if flooding comes, the tour could be risky.
China has invested tremendously in predicting and controlling the Yangtze flooding, and normally the waterway will be shut when flooding is expected to come.
