The visitor centre and summit attractions were splendid - to take an escalator outdoors was a little surprising - and the view over the Dam fabulous. One of the modern Wonders of the World without a doubt. I'm only sorry we didn't experience the shiplift,...More

This was a highlight on our Yangtze cruise. Not only did we visit the project and have a great view of the Dam, its lift and locks, but we also traveled through those huge locks during the night.

Having boarded our cruise ship the Yangste Legend, our first all inclusive tour the next day was to visit the Three Gorges Dam Project. The staid grandeur of this massive project was offset by the magnificent and atmospheric views from the vantage point which towers...More

It's about a 90 minute drive from YiChang along the Yangtze. Not a particularly interesting drive but road is good. We stopped first in the visitor center to learn how the dam is structured and operated. There also is a nice video presentation of its...More
