The Yangtze River is “tamed” with combination of sheer determination, Chinese industriousness, perseverance, technology, both local and international, and the death of 55 lives.

Although it's a project that China spend billions on, it isn't worth a visit. The only reason we stopped was because that's where the River Cruise tour took us at the end of the Yangtze River cruise -- otherwise we wouldn't have bothered. Ridiculous security...More
