China is a monumental stage showcasing modern miracles -- the Yangtze its lifeblood.
The world’s great rivers are the major artery of a country, bisecting its soul. The Mississippi River is that river in the United States, while in China, it’s the Yangtze. At 3,900-plus miles, the Yangtze River is the world’s third longest. It’s not surprising, then, that China river cruises are a popular add-on to a vacation to China for many travelers.
Operating from March through November, Yangtze River cruise itineraries are usually four nights upstream or three nights downstream, or a one-week long roundtrip cruise, visiting towns enroute as well as some of China's spectacular landscapes. The peak months to enjoy a China cruise are April, May, September and October. View our Asia river cruises above, or contact us to plan your Yangtze river cruise adventure.
