Three Gorges, Yichang
(4.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Cruise the longest river in Asia on an open-air deck surrounded by sheer cliffs and green hills at Three Gorges, a dam famous for offering outstanding scenery. The picture-perfect nature spot--classified as the highest-rated scenic area in China--spans nearly 120 km (75 mi) and also boasts cultural relics, such as ancient temples and discoveries from the Paleolithic era. The dam features a memorial garden, where you can see heavy machinery used in its construction, and several viewing platforms. Take a moment to relax at one of the viewpoints, watching barges pass by and local anglers set sail from fishing villages on the riverbanks. Put Three Gorges on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Yichang holiday planner.
