Incredible beauty and fascinating culture await you on this 17-day, China and Hong Kong vacation with Yangtze River Cruise. Your trip starts in Shanghai, China's futurist city, where you learn about ancient Chinese art at the Shanghai Museum and stroll along the Bund.

Fly to Yichang and embark on your 4-night river cruise up the Mighty Yangtze aboard one of the finest Yangtze cruise ship—Victoria Jenna with Executive Suite and separate VIP dining, through the timeless beauty of Three Gorges and visit the ambitious Three Gorges Dam Site, the largest of its kind in the world. Disembark in China's most populous mountain city, Chongqing and say hi to the pandas.

In China's southwest subtropical Guilin, you cruise on the Li River and soak in the landscape that seems lifted straight out of a Chinese scroll painting. Then on to Xian in central China to reinvent a dream back to China's greatest Tang Dynasty, and marvel at its 6,000 life-sized Terracotta Warriors guarded China's first Emperor's tomb for the past 2,000 years.

Your trip ends in Beijing, China's proud capital, with visits to the Great Wall of China, the Last Emperor's Forbidden City, and other imperial treasures.

For those that want to stay longer, travel to the beautiful harbor city of Hong Kong. Enjoy a tram ride up Victoria Peak and a Sampan ride at Aberdeen. In your free time, consider a day trip to Macau, China's City of Gambling.
