This is the stretch of the river that will be flooded in the next few years by the controversial dam currently under construction just outside Yichang. There are an enormous number of companies running tourist boats, and public transport boats along the river, and it's possible to go all the way to Shanghai from Yichang (and back) along the river. Tourist boats stop at locations deemed to be of tourist interest by the Chinese authorities, and usually include these excursions in the quoted price. I cruised along the river on the 'Snow Mountain', making ... Read the complete review
