Two dams, one gorge

On Sept. 8, they visited the Gezhou Dam, Xiling Gorge and Three Gorges Dam on a cruise ship. When the ship floated gradually to pass a ship lock of Gezhou Dam, they went up to the deck taking photos to mark the special moment.

They then viewed the magnificent Xiling Gorge. Samuel Robert from Australia said it was the best way to take a ship to appreciate the sight of the Three Gorges. "And it could be even better with a beer."

After getting off the ship, they took a bus to have a closer look at the world's largest water conservation project. They were amazed by the Three Gorges Dam. Before leaving, they took a group photo in front of the dam.

According to the city's tourism officials, the "two dams one gorge" is Yichang's unique resource, which refers to the Three Gorges Dam, Gezhou Dam and Three Gorges. Multiple scenic spots are located in the area, which has become the top selling point of the city's tourism promotion.

Against the grand view of mountains and river, girls sang folk songs to traditional instrument while men cast nets to catch fish. The foreign representatives were impressed by the river culture they had never seen.

Alice Hu and Hong Gu from the United States and Canada even put on local Chu costumes to have a better taste of the culture. Hong Gu said the Chinese culture has a very long history.
