Grand Canal

1 anmeldelse

Of all of the wonders of Ancient China only two are believed to be visible from space: The Great Wall and The Grand Canal. While the Great Wall doesn’t run anywhere close to Hangzhou, the southern terminus of China’s other wonder of engineering, the Grand Canal, can still be found in the city today.

Commissioned during the Sui Dynasty as a way to connect the Haihe, Yellow, Huaihe, Yangtze and Qiantang rivers, the Grand Canal at one point stretched for over 1,100 miles (1,770 kilometers) and earned the title of longest canal or artificial river in the entire world. Once running from Hangzhou all the way to Beijing, various sections of the canal have fallen into disrepair and are no longer navigable. Nevertheless, visitors to the southern sections around Hangzhou are still able to book a cruise boat on the historic trade route for a view of traditional waterfront villages and a chance to learn the history of the greatest supply conduit in all of Ancient China.
