2008 Three Gorges Discovery:12 day China Tour

2008 Three Gorges Discovery - 12 days

Cruise past sheer gorges and mountain villages on the mighty Yangtze.

Imagine yourself cruising past an ancient mountain village soon to be submerged by the mighty Yangtze on one of the world's great river journeys.

The Three Gorges Dam Project is the perfect illustration of Mother Nature's limitless power and humankind's determination. Cruise past settlements soon to meet their fate under the currents of the Yangtze, but only after you get to know vibrant Beijing and the cultural capital of Xian. Explore modern Shanghai after three nights on China's great river. You're sure to find plenty to love about the 'Pearl of the Orient' and nearby Zhujiajiao.
