The Yangtze River is an important waterway for commerce of all magnitude, from one-person fishing craft to huge barges and fair-sized cruise ships.
In this post are a selection of small boats. Well, the first one isn’t actually a boat!
On our second day of the cruise we transferred to smaller tour boats to visit the higher reaches of some of the gorges which you can see here. These two photos show details from our smaller tour boat.
While we were on the tour up-gorge, there were numerous other smallish boats, including ones containing only Chinese tourists.
When we returned to the mooring of the cruise ship we were met by a friendly mobile shrimp vendor. Judging by the colour and content of the water in the Yangtze, it would not have been my choice for a healthy lunch.
Next post: bigger boats – probably more properly termed ships.
