Thank you to all those who replied to our previous query regarding the train timetables.
After viewing the web sites suggested we have established that it would be cheaper and quicker for us to travel from HK to Yichang rather than Chongquin.
My question is Does anyone know if we would be able to cruise up river from Yichang to Chongquin in December. We would then propose to travel by train from Chongquin to Xian. Most advertised cruises appear to operate from Chongquin to Yichang but I assume the ships would have to take passengers on the way back. If cruses operate up river does anyone know how often they run in December as I assume it would not be that frequent as in summer.
