Travel Tips for Yichang

Saying goodbye...

by herzog63

When it came time to say goodbye we each took a photo as we where going to get our train tickets. I'm sure the parents of the children were wondering where their kids were as they followed us around for a few hours. So this is our departing shot.........Great memories for me!!

Yichang - Gateway to the Three Gorges Dam.

by K.Knight

"The Three Gorges"

The number one reason for visiting Yichang is the Three Gorges Dam project and the chance to see this magnificent series of gorges before they are flooded and lost to the world forever.

And let me tell you, the Three Gorges are simply stunning.

The huge peaks of this spectacular gorge and river system, that dwarf the large ships as they quietly go about their daily trade, are spectacular and the sheer cliff walls are something to behold.

Each of the three gorges take between 3 and 5 hours to navigate and the sense of Mother Nature intimidating us mere mortals was something special. As we sailed slowly down the mighty Yangtze River I could not help but wonder about the sheer magnitude of water that was being held away from its ultimate goal of reaching the ocean. I also attempted to picture what it would be like to sail these same waters when Mother Nature unleashed her fury in all her glory and the calm Yangtze became an angry bubbling soil stained torrent.

"The MS Fortune 3 day cruise."

Anne and I actually took a three day Yangtze River cruise that actually started in Chongqing and ended in Yichang.

The number one reason for visiting Yichang is the Three Gorges Dam project and the chance to see this magnificent series of gorges before they are flooded and lost to the world forever.

Anne did exactly that and we decided to take the river cruise as a way of experiencing the wonder that is the Three Gorges Dam

"The Biggest Dam in the world"

The Biggest Dam in the world….NOT!

Yes, the Three Gorges Dam is Impressive.
Yes, the Three Gorges Dam is an engineering miracle.
Yes, the Three Gorges Dam is the most expensive engineering project in the world to date.

The Chinese are a constantly advising you that they have the biggest this and the biggest that, even if they have to stretch the truth a little! We were constantly told that Three Gorges dam is the largest Dam in the world.

Well, it is not the largest dam in the world at all. The Chinese believe that they can claim this status because they used the most amount of cement in the world to build a dam. (That therefore makes it the biggest dam in the world does it not?)
