      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

      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
