Arrive in Yichang, you go to the pier by yourself and board our five-star President Cruises No. 7 vessel and begin our exciting Yangtze River adventure. Our hearts fill with excitement and anticipation as the ship departs in the night to sail up this mighty and mysterious river.

 
 
Day 2   Three Gorges

The Long River has been shaping China's geography and culture for thousands of years. It evokes a sense of timelessness. Enjoy the river's primordial wonders in the civilized comforts and amenities on board. Today we visit the Three Gorges Dam, the world's largest hydroelectric dam under construction. Dubbed the "Great Wall across the River", the dam's mandates are to control floods, improve navigation, and produce huge amounts of electricity. We resume sailing in the afternoon and the Xiling Gorge looms ahead. Xiling is the longest of the Three Gorges and its treacherous frothing currents demand skillful piloting.

  • Includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 3   Three Gorges

The next Gorge we pass through is the Wu Gorge. Here, the long River turns and twists at very sharp angles while towering peaks, called the "12 Holy Peaks", look down. Try to catch a glimpse of the Goddess Peak for good luck. We reach Wushan and drop anchor. We arrive at Wushan to board small motorized sampans which afford us access to the Shennong Stream via the Daning River. We return to our ship in the afternoon and sail to the last remaining Gorge.

  • Includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
 
Day 4   Three Gorges

Today sail through the last remaining Gorge, the Qutang Gorge. Though the shortest of the Three Gorges, Qutang's soaring cliffs are the highest and its waters the most powerful. In the past, its churning whirlpools and swells and flying debris were feared as representations of the "river dragon". Today's travelers in modern ships safely and routinely ply these perilous rapids. Depending on the river conditions, our shore excursion takes us to either Fengdu or Shibaozhai (shore excursions are at your own expense). The “Ghost City” Fengdu is known for its statues of ghosts and devils on Mingshan Hill. Shibaozhai’s attraction lays with its 12-story tall wooden pagoda, amazingly built 400 years ago without use of a single nail. After returning safely to our ship we again set sail.

  • Includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 5   Three Gorges  - Chongqing

This morning, our President Cruises ship's arrival in Chongqing marks the end of the memorable Three Gorges cruise. Chongqing, located in the Sichuan province, it is China’s largest municipality with a population of well over 30 million. End of tour.
