Visiting the Yangtze from Shanghai. Suggestions?

Question by Rob….=]: Visiting the Yangtze from Shanghai. Suggestions?
Visiting the Yangtze from Shanghai.

I have just booked flights to China for a (short) 10day visit. I am flying into Beijing and spending three nights there before heading to Shanghai. I am travelling with a friend who really wants to visit the Yangtze. What is the easiest, quickest and cheapest way of visiting the Yangtze from Shanghai? I looked at flights to Chongqing from Beijing/Shanghai but they are so expensive, do any cruises leave from Shanghai along the Yangtze? Are there any nice areas of the Yangtze easily accessible from Shanghai?
Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi there,
There are Bullet trains from Hongqiao Railway Station to North Chongqing that cost 473RMB one way for a second class seats. The journey takes about 18 hrs ( not too sure ). The normal train will take roughly 36 hrs. There are also Cruises to the Yangtze from Shanghai but most of the itinerary were be 6-8days. And its also very costly. Have provided some sites for you.

Answer by loveanonymoty
I am familiar with the tigres and euphrates river of mesopotamia. During the neolithic period, men discovered how to domesticate animals and cultivate food and in turn, civilization occurred. Permanent constructions of settlements usually occur near rivers. And also during this period the discovery of using copper alloy in conjuction with tin created a stronger metal, bronze. So I would confidently say during the late neolithic period.

Answer by Nathan
The upper reaches of the Yangtze are much more beautiful than the lower reaches. Fly out to Chongqing and do the three day cruise from their down to the three gorges.Spend some time in Chongqing and then hop on the highspeed train and check out Chengdu.

Question by cancersucks: Isn’t it in China and India’s best interest to clean up the Yangtze and Ganges rivers?
Someone once pointed out that the healthcare costs of premature babies is skyrocketing out of control. Well, we have to pay it! What do we want, the human species to die out? Same with the rivers. We cannot live without water. So isn’t it in China and India’s governments interest to clean up the rivers and prevent their pollution so that you don’t have people dying? You have to find a way!!

Best answer:

Answer by Millie C
Despite the fact that U.S. is still the leader in pollution, China will soon surpass us as they continue to industrialize. It’s not just the rivers that are worrisome…you have air pollution, depleting vital resources, endangering species…especially in our oceans. They economy has improved and their population is stabilizing, which is good, but at what cost?

Which’s better River to Cruise Nile or Yangtze?

Question by : Which’s better River to Cruise Nile or Yangtze?
Nile in Egypt

and Yangtze in china

Best answer:

Answer by simon
Yangtze is best. There is much more to see lots of towns and villages and various cultures.

The Nile is just surrounded by desert. Ok you have pyramids etc but you also have ancient sites in china and a whole lot more. Also Egypt is a very unstable country at present.
