This trip was an Optional extra on our Yangtze River 4 nights cruise. It turned out to be spectacular and we were very glad we decided to do this. The scenic views are fantastic. See attached photos for the proof.

This was the beginning of our cruise and although there was a heavy mist the scenery was still beautiful. A variety of boats/ships can be seen too. I particularly liked the old traditional ones
