A Visit to Yangtze RiverNowadays, there are a bunch of the most popular tourist attractions along Yangtze River cruise line. In the eyes of the visitors, they are all must-see spots during Yangtze River cruise. Now let me take you to visit some of them.

The town of Fengdu, said to be the abode of devils, is one of the first stops on your Yangtze River cruise. The famous “Ghost City” deserves to visit. Today, the town throngs with many tourists who come to visit temples and shrines dedicated to the gods of the underworld. This place definitely would take your breath away on your Yangtze River cruise. Landmarks here bear horrific names. Last glance at Home Tower, Nothing-to-be-done Bridge, and Ghost Torturing pass the three trials for ghosts who wanted to enter the nether world. These attractions surely will blow your mind during your Yangtze River cruise here. Shibaozhai architecture consists of three parts: the gate, the pagoda and the temple on the top. A nine story red wooden pagoda with upturned eaves is 50m high, and dates back to the Qing Dynasty. Stairs to the top give a magnificent view over the river. It is undoubtedly a highlight of your Yangtze River cruise.

Another must-see spot during your Yangtze River cruise is the lesser Three Gorges. They, situated on a tributary of the Yangtze, are much smaller, narrower and have some splendid and amazing scenery to offer. Situated on a much smaller river as they are on Yangtze River cruise only passenger boats can make their way up the narrow gorges and winding river. On both sides impressive stone cliffs are interspersed with surrounding rural scenery and forested areas. It was selected as one of the forty top tourist attractions in China in 1991, jointly by the tourists and the China Tourism Commissioner’s votes and evaluation. As tourism is expanding and developing rapidly along Yangtze River cruise line, the Lesser Three Gorges, like a shinning pearl hidden in remote mountains, has become a great attraction to the tourists both at home and abroad. Those who have been to the place seem to return to the embrace of nature. Tourists’ hearty praise of the Lesser Three Gorges goes that this is the most splendid river adventure throughout China. In order to make it known to the outside world, during their Yangtze River cruise, they take photographs, write articles, compose poems and draw paintings enthusiastically one after another.
