The Velvet Moments travel photo series is a collection of photographic moments that define a Velvet Escape travel experience.

I decided to take this series a step further by inviting some of my favourite travel bloggers to contribute a photo “that has Velvet Escape written all over it!”. Here’s the first photo:
A guest contribution from Dave and Deb of The Planet D.
China is rapidly developing and the Three Gorges Damn has been one of the most controversial projects that the country has taken on. Flooding ancient cities and relocating millions of people, the Three Gorges Damn now generates power for 3% of China’s energy consumption. But while we were sailing the Yangzi River, we felt far away from the chaos of the cities and enjoyed a quiet journey floating down one of the most mythical rivers on earth. Technology may be creeping in but there are still signs of an ancient past like this old fishing boat clinging to an age old tradition of fisherman working these waters for centuries. – Dave & Deb
