Want a stress-free and time-saving way to get to the cruise Port from the airport? China Highlights can provide you with comfortable private transport straight to the Port. Contact us and we can also help you arrange your Yangtze cruise.

NOTICE: We have just received an official notification from the Transportation Department of China that because of new Yangtze navigation regulations, the Victoria Sophia will not be permitted to sail to or from Shanghai.

We have a legal team and are in negotiations with the Transportation Department to permit us to receive a waiver of this regulation for at least 2016, but we must now cancel our cruises on the Chongqing to Shanghai & v.v. itinerary for 2017.

We will keep you informed of the status of our negotiations. Any questions please contact our travel advisor.
