Yangtze River Cruises Travel Guide
长江游轮Cruising on the Yangtze River is one of the epic China river journeys made by many travelers. When added to a long China itinerary it is like a vacation in your trip. You get to nest in a nice room in a comfortable ship, walk to all your meals and watch the scenery go by as your ship cruises along. Our advice would be to choose the best ship you can afford, because much of the enjoyment comes just from being on a nice ship. As you travel along you will be shuttled ashore on various excursions, most of which are included in the price of your tour. Meals aside from the first night are also included.
We suggest bring drinks and snacks to enjoy in your room. Its nice to pour yourself a cocktail or crack open a beer. Most rooms will include a small refrigerator. Its also nice to bring your own fruit to enjoy. But don't worry, if you don't there is plenty to eat and drinks to buy onboard. You normally receive one bottle of drinking water per person per day. You can also buy drinks onshore when you make your excursions, there are vendors in most places.
NightlifeMost ships will offer some evening activities including a crew show one night.
