Chongqing mini cruise
We were in Chongqing in August 2009 for a short visit. Chongqing is wellknown in China as embarking port for cruise ships on the Yangtze River. Ships from Chongqing are sailing to Yichang , Wuhan and Shanghai.
Although our time was limited, we got a bit the feeling what would be a real cruise. Fare of the mini-cruise was 40 Yuan p.p for an one hour journey. Tickets were sold by vendors near the boat at Chaotianmen Dock. Chaotianmen Dock is 2 kilometers from downtown where the cruise boats are waiting for their passengers.
Onboard of our mini-cruise boat. There were not many people. Most of the passengers were sitting inside. The temperature outside was 40 celcius degrees. Chongqing is one of the hottest cities in China.
