Yangtze River and Three Gorges Luxury Cruise Tour
Situated at the breakpoint of upper and middle reaches of the Yangtze in west Hubei, Yichang is a major tourist city with the splendid Three Gorges up the river. The land of Yichang itself is studded with tourist attractions, including Gezhouba Water Conservancy Project in northwest Yichang, Sanyou Cave, and the battlefield of Yiling during the Three Kingdoms Period. The famous Gezhouba Water Conservancy Project is on the trunk section of the Yangtze in northwest Yichang. Visitors also have the chance to see Chinese sturgeons, an endangered species contemporised with dinosaurs. A grownup sturgeon can grow to 4 metres in length and 500 kg in weight. Sailing upstream the river, one arrives in Zigui county for a visit to the tomb of the great poet Qu Yuan and the temple dedicated to him. The birthplace of Wang Zhaojun, a Western Han beauty, lies by the picturesque Xiangxi River, where dragon-boat cruises are available.
