The writer pearl Buck called it “the most savage, the meanest river on Earth.” With a length of 6300 km, the Yangtze is the third largest river in the world and the economic and cultural artery of China. But the highlight of any cruise here are the brooding mountains, plunging cliffs and dense bamboo groves, crowned by the dramatic hydroelectric dam the Three gorges dam, the largest in the world.
Want to see the rural life in India, far from the glittering attractions of bollywood? Cruise on the Ganges will take you to several coastal villages.
