MAIN CITIES TO EXPLORE BY CRUISING

  • SHANGHAI

    Shanghai is situated on the banks of the Yangtze River Delta in Eastern China. Widely regarded as the citadel of China's modern economy, the city also serves as one of the most important cultural, commercial, financial, industrial and communications centers of China. Shanghai continues to grow and prosper, meeting the aspirations of the 21st century, whilst retaining its proud traditions of service and hospitality. The Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Jinmao Mansion and Pudong International Airport are the modern symbols of an international metropolis, whilst the Shanghai Museum, Shanghai Grand Theatre and Shanghai City Planning Exhibition Center are evidence of the extensive and deep passion of a great city that extends a warm welcome to friends from all over the world.

  • NANJING

    As one of the most attractive major cities in China, Nanjing (historically Nanking) is situated in the lower reach of the Yangtze River. It sports a long historical heritage and has served as the capitals of six dynasties. With the Yangtze River on the north side, and surrounded on the other three sides by hills, Nanjing was thought to be auspicious as well as strategically important. The Nanjing area has been inhabited for about 5000 years, and a number of prehistoric sites have been discovered in or around the city. Today, Nanjing is the capital city of Jiangsu Province, covering an area of 6,421 square kilometers with a population of over 5.37 million. Its industries included machine-manufacture, automobile, assembly, electronics, petroleum, iron and steel, textile, shipbuilding and foodstuff.

  • WUHAN

    With the Yangtze River running through the city, Wuhan was once nicknamed the “River City.” In addition to that, Wuhan has been referred to as the “Chicago of China” due to its role as a transportation hub for central China. It was even, at one point, described by way of an ancient Chinese idiom from the Ming Dynasty as “九省通衢 (jiu sheng tong qu),” which means that Wuhan is easily accessible by water or land from nine provinces in China. Today, Wuhan is still the transportation hub of Central China. In addition, Wuhan is also recognized as the third largest technological and educational center in China behind Beijing and Shanghai. It is also a key finance, commerce, logistics and cultural center of Central China, even being colloquially known as the “golden key” to the enormous markets located within China’s central areas.

  • CHONGQING

    Chongqing is the largest municipality in southwest China. It is a modern port city on the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. Chongqing was separated from the province and designated a provincial-level municipality under the direct administration of the central government, the fourth one (after Beijing, Shanghai, and Tianjin) to be established in 1997.Chongqing makes up for a lack of top-notch sights with fantastic food and charismatic geography, Chongqing is undergoing a stage of dramatic redevelopment, making it a fascinating city to visit for any traveller. There's nowhere else in China you'll see a dramatic glass skyscraper next to precarious stilted houses and eateries centuries old. Chongqing is undergoing a stage of dramatic redevelopment, making it a fascinating city to visit for any traveller.
