Yangtze Attractions

Your time in China won’t be complete without exploring the Yangtze. It offers you an opportunity to see more rural China while on one of the many available river cruises. The almost 4,000 miles of the Yangtze crosses eleven provinces and, for some, is the division between North and South China. If you start at its source in the Kunlun Mountains, you can also experience some Tibetan culture.
