Running from Bingen to Koblenz, the Middle Rhine is lined with ancient castles, vineyards and romantic ruins nestled among the green hillsides. It’s easy to understand why this 65km stretch of the Rhine has inspired writers and composers for centuries.

The longest river in Asia, the Yangtze leads travellers through the cradle of ancient Chinese civilisation. The region boasts dramatic sights, including the Three Gorges Dam in Wuhan, the ‘ghost city’ of Fengdu and the misty canyons of Xiling.
