Cruise the longest river in Asia on an open-air deck surrounded by sheer cliffs and green hills at Three Gorges, a dam famous for offering outstanding scenery. The picture-perfect nature spot--classified as the highest-rated scenic area in China--spans nearly 120 km (75 mi) and also boasts cultural relics, such as ancient temples and discoveries from the Paleolithic era. The dam features a memorial garden, where you can see heavy machinery used in its construction, and several viewing platforms. Take a moment to relax at one of the viewpoints, watching barges pass by and local anglers set sail from fishing villages on the riverbanks.
