Spend 4 or 5 days floating down or up the longest river in China; lie down in a deck chair watching the mountains and gorges pass by, shut out the whole world but delicacy and breathtaking view.
Boring? The cruise never allows it. Morning Tai Chi excises, Fashion show, Mahjong and culinary courses, beauty salon, massage…Not enough? Optional sampan excursion on Shengnong Stream, Little Three Gorges, Fengdu Ghost Town, you call the shot. And the lifetime memory of sailing through the "Super Ship Lock" of Three Gorges Dam, can you afford to miss it?
