My Yangtze River Cruise tour start from March 15th to March 18.
Day 1 Embark at Chongqing
First day when I arrived in Chongqing, I went to the famous place Hongyadong and was keen to see the what I saw on TV before. I saw it with my own eyes and found it exactly the same and wonderful.
Ship sailed from 9 clock at the first night, and we sailed away from city gradually… a little bit afraid but exciting for me.
Day 2 Get to ShibaozhaiThe second day, I woke up with soothing music and got myself ready for a fresh day. Free and relaxing time in the morning. In the afternoon, joined the shore excursion to the Shibaozhai. And here you will find peaceful in scenery and in village and from people…
Day 3 Beautiful Gorges
Then the third day of cruise comes. I saw two gorgeous gorges -the magnificent Qutang Gorge & the beautiful Wu Gorge.
After went though the bridge built on the Yangtze River and looked back, a new city arose… And I cannot help thinking of the sense of belonging of Chinese people and the scarification of these migrants of the Three Gorges area who had to leave their home due to the great project.
With respect to people in that place, then we met another group who stay in Shennong stream and earn a living by being boat trackers. The oldest among them is already 80 years old. Like most villages in China, younger people are all out of town for modernized life as the traditional skill is difficult and the traditional lifestyle is hard.
Day 4 Sunrise & Three Gorges Dam
The last day, early morning, I saw sunrise. How beautiful it is!
The final destination- The Three Gorges Dam. It is the reason for all above happened and it’s the key of the Yangtze River cruise!
