      Travel agent or book myself for domestic flights and river cruise?

      China Dec 25, 2016 at 8:43 PM

      We will be in Shanghai in early June 2017 and would like to do a Yangtze River cruise from Yichang to Chongqin then fly to Xian for a couple of days then fly back to Shanghai again. Is it feasible to book this myself or does this need to be done through a travel agent and be on a private tour?
      I figure we don't need a tour guide while on the cruise, but is it easy enough to get from end of cruise in Chongqin to airport with maybe a quick look around or trip to the zoo if I just organise a guide/driver myself?

      Has anyone here booked a tour in China?

      China Dec 20, 2016 at 3:54 PM

      I'm planning a big trip to China next year (Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an and maybe a few others) and I want to book either one big tour or a few smaller tours. I don't know whether to book a private tour (which costs more) or a group tour? I don't think I want to be on a tour bus full of people but am aware of the costs of private tours. I don't think I can travel in this region without a guide, especially as I have zero language skills.

      Has anyone had any experience with this? What should I look out for or be concerned about? I'm not really sure where to start.

      Also, does anyone know any good value places to book tours? Is it better to wait until i'm there and find them or book from an agent here?? Any help welcome!

      Chongqing to Yichang: local boats

      by mlcr Online Now Oct 16, 2004 at 8:53 AM

      Hi, I'm planning to travel from Chongqing to Yichang by local passenger boat. I want to stop off at a couple of cities along the way, and also see the lesser gorges. Is this possible using local boats? Also have you any idea of the cost of a cabin. I'd appreciate any useful tips anyone may have : )

    • Yangzte short trip

      by tlindstr Online Now Mar 16, 2004 at 3:42 AM

      Hi, I would like to do the Yangtze as short as feasible and not on a cruiser. I've planned to take a passenger boat from Yichang to Fengjie or Wushan and then a hydrofoil back to Yichang. The other option is to first take the hydrofoil and then a passenger boat back. I found quite much info at www.chinadam.com, but a couple of things I couldn't find. So here are my questions: - is there accomodation in Fengjie (also called Yong'an) and Wushan? Is there budget accomodation -> what is the price-level? - at what times does passenger boats and hydrofoils leave from Fengjie and Wushan towards Yichang? The other way around there are loads of info at www.chinadam.com - at what time should the passenger boat leave from Yichang or Fengjie in order to see all 3 gorges in daylight? Is it even possible in one day? Approx. when does it get too dark to see anyhting? - at what time does hydrofoils leave Chongqing and when do the arrive in Fengjie? Any piece of information appreciated :) Thomas
