Disembarkation in Chongqing

This is about Disembarkation in Chongqing for 4 Nights / 5 Days Upstream Yangtze River cruises (sailing from Yichang to Chongqing). Normally, passengers will disembark at Chaotianmen Dock around 9:00 am on Day 5.

Travel TIPS

  • Usually, the cruie ship disembarkation time is usually about 9:00 am on the morning of Day 5. If you are leaving Chongqing on the same day, we suggest you book a flight leaving Chongqing after 12:00 pm or a train leaving after 11:00 pm.
  • IMPORTANT: According to the water level conditions, especially in flood season in summer, the disembarkation port might be changed to Fengdu Port, and a coach transfer would be arranged from Fengdu to Chongqing city center (usually drop off at Chongqing Grand Theatre) by the cruise line. If this situation happens, the arrival time might be around 10:00 am. So a suggested flight departure is after 1:00 pm, or a train departure after 12:00 pm.

Xiaoshizi Station is the nearest metro station to Chaotianmen Docks, as the Chaotianmen Station (scheduled to operate by the end of 2020) is still under construction. From Chaotianmen Docks to Xiaoshizi Station, you may take a taxi, taking about 15-20 minutes (1km – 3km as per different piers). Walking to docks (different route) is possible but there are many stairs enroute, so not recommended for passengers with baggage.

Private Transfer

If you prefer a worry-free tour experience, you may book a private transfer (add-on service) when you book a Yangtze River cruise with us. Your private driver will expect you at Chaotianmen Dock and send you to airport / railway station, and you don’t need to share the van with any strangers. It is also an ideal option for groups with more than 2 people, as there might be no enough space for 3-4 PAX with baggage in a taxi.
