And if your time and money available, you can just have fun in Shanghai and Hangzhou and Suzhou nearby to view more beautiful scenery in China such as Yuyuan Garden, Nanjing Road and the Bund the West Lake and so on.

Know more about the Three Gorges here: Xiling Gorge is located at the west between the Xisai of the Chu Country and Yiling (the old Yichang) and is the longest gorge of the Three Gorge which is famous for its steep rocks, zigzag channels, strange stones, plenty beaches, urgent water and thrilling boat-taking. Wu Gorge is long and narrow and the duration of direct sunshine is short, the humidity of the gorge usually yields clouds and mists easily. With mists and clouds curling around, Wu Gorge seems more fascinating and mysterious.  Qutang Gorge is well known for not only its steepness but also its magnificence in spite of its shortest length when comparing to Wu Gorge and Xiling Gorge.
