Yangtze River Ferry Boats

By Candice SongUpdated Mar. 18, 2021

Yangtze River ferries have been plying the waters of the Yangtze for hundreds of years. Used by the locals to just cross the river or to transport anything and everything, they have been and still are an indispensible part of life along the mighty Yangtze River.

There are two kinds of ferries carrying people, one only takes passengers from one side to the other, it costs CNY10 (US$1.6) per person per crossing. The other ferry does sight-seeing trips from Chongqing to Yichang. These usually carry Chinese people as foreigners are more likely to take a more luxurious cruise. The ticket price is CNY1100 (US$173) per person.
