No Longer a Mystery, But Still Intriguing!

A Yangtze River cruise and China tour is the perfect vacation and the most affordable way to see this immense land and its people. It could be daunting to plan such an intensive trip without professional help both from our team at Premier River Cruises and the expert tour directors and local guides supplied by your choice of river cruise companies. Currently, Avalon Waterways, Uniworld and Viking are our choice for an luxurious river cruise on the Yangtze. View all China river cruises in the cruisGENIE™ Cruise Chart below.

For many years, much of this vast, mysterious land& was closed to visitors. Even today, access to certain areas such as Tibet is tightly controlled. Only recently has China begun to take center stage among the major players of the world. Napoleon called China a “sleeping giant” and warned everyone to beware once it wakened. Well, I think we can all say that China has more than awakened — its impact on the world has been felt in numerous arenas ranging from sports to politics to becoming one of the world’s top travel destinations.

When we think of China we picture this immense land stretching from the Pacific westward towards Europe. No doubt about it, China is huge, but did you know that the United States, Canada, and Russia are all larger? It’s true. China does have the world’s largest population at over 1.3 billion people and just last year it overtook the United States to become the world’s largest energy user. For travelers, China is now among the top 5 tourist destinations in the world — it just has so much to offer, from the cosmopolitan city of Shanghai to the ancient monasteries of Tibet.

Before we start to delve into things to do and places to see we need to spend a moment talking about China’s most important asset and the part that we guarantee will impress you the most when you return from your trip — the people! You know how many of us in business always say “it’s the people that make our company what it is,” well with China maybe more than any other place we've visited, we were enthralled by the people and in particular the children of China. Their warm genuine desire to meet you, talk with you and learn from you will be unforgettable. Their smiles will be more well remembered than the Mona Lisa and the hospitality and access to all you meet will amaze you — yes it is the people who make China what it is today for you the visitor.
