Book a holiday to the Yangtze with the UK's #1 China Operator
China's reopening is the news we've all been waiting for and we simply couldn't wait to get back to this sensational destination so we could give you an exclusive inside scoop on what travelling to China is like right now?
Watch the report as we broadcasted LIVE from China.
Stretching 3,195 miles from the glaciers of the Tibetan plateau to the East China Sea by Shanghai, the Yangtze River is Asia’s longest river, and the third-longest in the world. Winding its way through mountains, gorges and fertile plains, the Yangtze has played a pivotal role in the history, culture and economy of China, having been used for irrigation, sanitation and transportation for thousands of years. The Yangtze is perhaps best known for the dramatic stretch of river that passes through the Three Gorges, and more recently the controversy of the Three Gorges Dam, which transformed the river beyond recognition over recent years. Cruising the river lays out a fascinating glimpse of the country past and present – on the banks you’ll see huge industrial centres, natural splendour, old places of worship and agricultural land still tended by conical hatted farmers with teams of buffalo.
No trip to The Yangtze River would be complete without seeing one of the wonders listed below.
The Yangtze River offers a wealth of wonderful sights and experiences. What better way to explore them than on a Wendy Wu tour?
