Dining

inspired cuisine Inspired Cuisine — Every Day of Your Trip

Whether you're dining on gourmet fare in your hotel's restaurant; enjoying the flavors and cultural exchange of a home-hosted meal of local items; or indulging in a buffet overflowing with fresh produce, cheeses, and international favorites, mealtime is an experience to be savored. All meals give you a varied, authentic experience that reflects the essence of your destination.

Dining in China

Breakfasts are all served buffet style with international menu options. Included lunches and dinners feature a few Western-style meals, but mostly Chinese cuisine. Although the Chinese dishes are similar to those you may enjoy in North America, the flavors may not be the same. During your Yangtze River cruise, dining varies between set menu gourmet meals and buffet offerings.

Special Meals

Special meals are also featured during your journey, including a Welcome Peking Duck Dinner, a home-hosted meal and a dumpling lunch. Your Tour Director can recommend specialty dishes that you may want to try when dining on your own at the hotel or a local restaurant.

Healthy choices plateHealthy Choices at Every Meal

Along with international fare, you'll also find many American favorites and choices for the health-conscious. We are happy to accommodate any special dietary requests you may have, such as low-salt, low-fat, gluten-free, vegetarian, diabetic, and lactose-intolerant, provided your requests are received at the time of booking.
