The Longest River in China - Yangtze River

Stretching more than six thousand kilometers, the Yangtze River is the third largest river in the world after the Nile and the Amazon, and it's the longest river in China. It flows through 13 provinces and has eight tributaries, like Huangpu River, Min River, Xiang River, Wu River, etc.

The Yangtze is the cradle of Chinese civilization, and it feeds the people with 70% of the rice. So, the Chinese call it the mother river. Lots of important sites were unearthed in the Yangtze Valley, among them, the Wu Moutain Daxi Culture is the most famous, with ancient articles such as barbs and fishing nets.

The Yangtze River is open to shipping year-round. It has been a crucial transportation route with major cities along its banks for thousands of years. A Yangtze River Cruise is favored by more and more visitors, who are keen to discover the wonderful natural landscape in the region. Normally, there are two classic cruise routes: upstream sailings and downstream sailings. The former starts in Chongqing and ends in Yichang, taking 4 days and 3 nights, while the latter is the opposite in terms of the route, taking 5 days and 4 nights and costing more. Visitors may enjoy the splendid mountains and landscape along the river, peek at the world-famous Three Gorges Dam, do excursions on the bank, take a boat trip in Shennong Stream and take the best photos of their Yangtze tour, etc.
