Our Story

CITS Yichang was one of the first companies to provide an online booking service for Yangtze River cruises.
Yangtze.com was founded by Michael Wu from Yichang, an important river port on the Yangtze River. Not only is Michael familiar with the area but he has recognized customers need reliable, timely information. Our domain Yangtze.com was registered on 1st Jan, 1996, which is 20 months before Google.com was registered.
