The world’s longest river within a single country, the Yangtze has played an essential and inspirational role in Chinese life since the dawn of that glorious civilisation. It unites regions diverse in landscape, language and culture, links cities ancient and modern - thus presenting an engaging timeline of Chinese history - and offers the most scenic means of traversing this vast country.
This superlative tour of China’s myriad highlights reveals the imperial treasures of Beijing and Xi’an along with the vibrancy of Shanghai, and includes a 6-night Yangtze river cruise aboard the state-of-the-art Victoria Sophia, taking in the awe-inspiring Three Gorges en route.
We check-out this morning to make the transfer to embark the Victoria Sophia, a remarkable vessel configured to sail the remarkable journey from the mountainous Chongqing to Shanghai. We cruise leisurely downstream. This afternoon’s shore excursion is to Fengdu, set in a region of outstanding beauty and known as the ‘ghost city’ for its long association with the spirit world and the afterlife. Enjoy the Captain’s Welcome Cocktail Party this evening.
