Summary
Asia's longest river begins in the Tibetan plateau, and threads its way for thousands of miles to the East China Sea. This legendary waterway is in the process of being dammed, which will displace over two million people from their ancestral homes, and bury thousands of archeological sites. Take an epic journey down the Yangtze, and through the spectacular Three Gorges. Visit the "City of Ghosts" Fengdu, and learn about Chinese mythology and superstitions. Join the 'trackers', wiry guides who navigate the tributaries of the Yangtze in long wooden boats, fending off the cliffs with bamboo poles. In the delta region, join the half million locals who get around on bikes. Tour the countryside, crossing ancient bridges and canals, and explore Suzhou, the 'Venice of the Orient." Marco Polo visited Suzhou and was amazed at the intricate silk embroidery, which remains the pride of the city. Finish up at the flamboyant metropolis of Shanghai, which captures the pulse of modern China, yet provides a stark contrast to the ancient villages that will be lost when the dam project is completed
