lots of stairs but pretty easy to walk... very interesting with lovely gardens, pagodas and displays... the punishment displays are pretty graphic in a cartoonish way

I enjoyed this excursion from Yangtze cruise. But it is quite a climb so you must possess at least average fitness.

Our coach tour stopped here for a couple of hours. Nice stop and an enjoyable wander around. Lots of small shops, some touristy and some not so.

We were on Victoria Anna last September doing the three nights/four days downstream from Chongqing to Yichang with the Executive Deck Program. I believe the ship was refurbished just a couple of years back but the cabin we... More
