Three Gorges Dam

A travel blog entry by kathrynelliott on May 01, 2014

... Dam, which is huge and clearly still a source of controversy here, as some 1.3 million people (!) had to be relocated (or persuaded to move, as our guide put it). You are taken in a bus up to a model of the whole dam project, which gives a good view of it, and then take 4 escalators up about 8 floors to a viewpoint at the top where you can see the whole thing. (Sign on the escalator - don't playing on the autowalk). There is a series of 5 locks ...

It turns out there's nothing much else to do here apart from the dam. We were ready to move on to the mountains if ...

A visit to the Dam area, which has been painstakingly adapted so that tourists can get a terrific insight into the immenseness of the whole project. On arrival, vessels are being navigated into the lowest of the five step locks. We were adopted by Wendy, a guide employed by the management of the dam, ...

3 Days, 3 Gorges

A travel blog entry by wuhan7 on Jul 14, 2012

YiChang is distinctly Chinese. Unlike Wuhan, Beijing, and (I presume) Shanghai there are few to none white, brown, or black faces. James, Jeff and I (Andy) came to Yichang after our plans to travel to Xian turned South. Faced with a 14 hour train ride on a soft seater we opted to search for other destinations. Lareina (one of our Wuhan guides) mentioned Yichang and the Three Gorges Dam. With few other ideas we booked ...
