Cruise ship on the Grand Canal

The Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, which has been in operation for over 2,500 years, is the oldest and longest man-made canal in the world. The canal, along with the Great Wall, is known as one of “two magnificent projects of ancient China”.

The Hangzhou section of the Grand Canal has a total length of 39 kilometers. It enters the city from the ancient town of Tangqi in Yuhang District, passes through Gongshu and Shangcheng Districts, and finally flows into the Qiantang River from the Three Gorges Lock.

Wulinmen Wharf is at the southern end of Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal. From here, one can cruise north, cross the Qingyuan Bridge, visit the Imperial Wharf where Qing Dynasty Emperor Qianlong (1644-1911) landed during his inspection tour of southern China , explore the Fuyi Granary and its artistic renaissance, and immerse yourself in a vibrant picture of the integration of civic life and modernity along the Grand Canal in Hangzhou.
