The deal: A $1,100 discount on a 13-day cruise of the Yangtze River in China with Sinorama; airfare from San Francisco or Los Angeles is included, starting at $2,149 per person (based on double occupancy).

When you’ll go: Nov. 17-29.

Why we love it: River cruises are all the rage these days, and you’ll get to tour the Mississippi River of China on a cruise that’s as all inclusive as you’re going to get. All of these are covered: airfare, five-star hotels when you’re onshore, three meals a day, airport pickup and dropoff, all admission fees, an English-speaking guide, and taxes.

What you can do there: After a night in Chongqing you’ll start your voyage on the Yangtze, the third-longest river in the world. You’ll see the spectacular Three Gorges region, which is home to some of China’s earliest archaeological sites, and the Three Gorges River, the world’s largest hydroelectricity project. You’ll also see the “Porcelain Capital” of Jingdezhen, which has been producing high-quality pottery for 1,700 years, and Jiuhuashan, one of the four sacred mountains of Chinese Buddhism.

How long does this last? Until July 31 (subject to availability).
