Best Time to Cruise on Yangtze River

Frequently, the questions that troubled us is “when is the best time to cruise on Yangtze River?” I will say “any time is OK, as long as the cruise ships are sailing.”  Actually, the best seasons should be Spring and Autumn, because the weather is cool and comfortable. The months are April to June, and September to November. In additon, June-August is also good times to book a Yangtze River Cruise.
