Yangtze River, China

(3.1/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Known as the world's third largest river, Yangtze River represents a historic, economic, and cultural hub for the entire Chinese nation. With the length of 6,380 km (3,964 mi), the river traverses through eleven provinces and pours itself into the East China Sea, where Shanghai--currently one of biggest metropolises on the planet--resides. Book a cruise ship to observe how the natural, climactic, and cultural scenery changes as you head from the mainland toward the sea. As you sail the characteristically yellow river, you can visit a substantial amount of attractions and many protected nature reserves. Make Yangtze River a centerpiece of your Yichang vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Yichang vacation route planner.
