Our First Yangtze River Pictures
Leaving Chongqing and Start of our Yangtze River Cruise

Yangtze River Cruise Yangtze River Cruise Yangtze River Cruise

As we left Chonqing behind, our first Yangtze River pictures were not of crystal clear blue waters and magnificent mountains... but of mighty Chinese enterprise at its best.

It was an imposing sight of striking contrasts: skyscrapers next to fishing villages, heavy traffic on the river from barges, tourist boats, small rafts full of goods from local craftsmen, construction everywhere you looked, bridges, freeways, cable cars, tunnels...

Since we came in the summer and thus the rainy season, the waters were brown, we were told, because of the sediment that washes off from the mountains with the rain. If you see the bustling industry and construction, you can guess that is only part of the reason... you can imagine the environmental challenges they are going through right now, trying to cope with all this massive growth, a chapter for discussion in itself.

In between getting acquainted with the ship and our new quarters, the safety briefings and welcome session, the morning flew by and in the afternoon we arrived at Fengdu, the Ghost City.

You can follow the course of the cruise in this Map of the Yangtze River as we started downstream from Chongqing to Yichang.
