I will arrive in Chongqing on 15 October in the evening and board the ship the next day, disembarking on 19 October in Yichang, from where I will catch a train to Wuhan.
Hi Roland, you can take the bullet train from Yichang East Railway Station. It takes about 2hrs and costs CNY 85-103. From the pier to the station is about 25km, 30mins by taxi. We have transfer service from the pier to the station, if you need it, please feel free to contact me 3 working days in advance. Nice day!

Topic From: President 1 Cruise
Hi, we (4 people)plan to have a trip from Chongqing to Yichang on 11 Nov. What is the best way to continue to Xian? A flight or by train? Would there be any idea to overnight in Wuhan? We don''t have many days for this trip.Regards,Marja
As your time is limited for this trip, a flight is suggested from Yichang to Xian. It is about 80 minutes flight trip. Yes, you could take a bullet train from Yichang to Wuhan then take overnight train to Xian, but it takes more time. If you want to take a train, you could take an over night train directly from Yichang to Xian.
How many days would you have for this trip? I would like to arrange a Yangtze cruise with the transportation to Xian for you. For your reference, I have made a tour itinerary and sent it to your email box. Please check it, if anything, just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We live in Chongqing but would like to have a complete tour of the town and also go on the Yangtze cruise. What type of tour do you have available us, if any?
Topic From: Yichang Transportation
I am planning to do an up stream YANGTZE CRUISE from Yichang to Chongqing and would like to then go the Chengdu to see the Panda''s and also Leshan.What is the easiest way for me to get from the boat to Chengdu
The easiest way from Chongqing to Chengdu we suggest is first take a private transfer to Chongqing pier to Chongqing train station, $ 30 per person( based on 2 persons), then take a bullet train from Chongqing to Chengdu, the first seat price is CNY 117, excluding the service fee.
If you need, I would like to tailor a Yangtze cruise with Chengdu tour for you. If anything, please contact me at email@example.com
As my husband and I dislike cruises in general,is there any way we could view the Three Gorges from hilltop towns along the Yangtze? Instead of the 3 day Yangtze cruises, would it be interesting to sail the Yangtze by hydrofoil stopping in small interesting towns along the way which would enable us to see the Little Three gorges? Could you devise a trip for us by road and/or hydrofoil(2 days max) on the Yangtze ending in Yichang and a tour of the dam. We would like to fly to Shanghai or Beijing from Yichang.
We would also like a few days in Chongqing before the yangtze expedition.could you p;ease also design a tour that takes in the Dazu grottos, Chang Jiang Yi Road escalator, Huguang guildhall, Ciqikou ancien town,Three gorges Museum and last but not least, the Wulong Nature reserves. I suppose two days in chongqing and two in the Wulong area would be sufficient.
please could you also let me know if the scenery along one of the tributaries of the Yangtze in the Wulong/Pengshui/Qianjiang area actually rivals that of the Three gorges. We like beautiful scenery and if you advise that it is worthwhile visiting the area (Qianjiang to Wulong) for the river view, we could add another day or two for our tour. Thank you in advance for your help.
Topic From: Ch Victoria Cruise
On the 4 day cruise from Chongqing to YIchang do you go throug the Locks on the Gorges
Dorethe, following the itinerary, the cruise will spend 4-5 hours to pass the Locks at Yangtze Dam at Yichang, but also cruise company would adjust the arrangement according to the goverment instruction or weather condition. For example, from the middle of July, due to the flood, all of the Yangtze Cruise from Chongqing to Yichang only can berth at Miaoping pier, they will not pass the locks. Cruise company will organise the coach visit to the Dam and drop off all passengers in Yichang city.
