• Dear HRC ChinaTourGuide,
  • Thank you for your help with the Yangtze cruise, it was wonderful & so spectacular. The crew on the ship were friendly and made us welcome, we were the only 2 English speaking on the cruise, but this was not a problem at all. The Chinese people were very kind and friendly

Relocation Village

The Relocation Village was built on the south side of the Yangtze River (across from Mingshan Hill) to accommodate those residents who relocated as a result of the rising waters of Yangtze River brought about by the Three Gorges Dam.

The £15bn Three Gorges Dam project is the world's largest hydroelectric project on the Yangtze River, designed to take water from a section of the Yangtze, to satisfy demand in northern China's drought-prone mega-cities, such as Beijing. Then 1.4 million people were forced to move as their villages were submerged beneath a reservoir 410 miles long. The project has given the Chinese valuable experience in moving large numbers of people.

During the drive to and through the relocation village, you can appreciate the spectacular landscapes of Yangtze River, as well as catch a glimpse of the distinctive folk custom. One of the highlight is a visit of a local farmer's family, from whom you can learn about how more than 1.4 million people left their original residences, settled in the relocation village and geared their lives to the new changes since their hometown was inundated. You can also wander around the new-set town to take a look at the local shops and markets.
