Hi Martin, I suggest that you take the Yangtze River Cruise start from Chongqing to Yichang(the essence of the Yangtze River Cruise ), then fly to Shanghai. The route is as below: Xian-Chongqing-Yangtz River Cruise-Yichang-Shanghai-Hong Kong
If the Yangtze River Cruise starts from Shanghai to Chongqing, it usually takes 8 nighs 9 days.Whitney Liao replied on 2013-03-20
Rosie, Usually the flight from Yichang to Xian GS6558 (15:20-16:30) is only operated on every Tue., Thu. and Sat. from Arpil to Nov. annually. If you travel in other period, you may consider taking the train journey K628 (Dep. 15:50 - Arr. next day 06:59), duration of 15 hours; or take the fast train (two hours) to Wuhan city then connect the flight to Xian (the last schedule leaves around 20:00).
