The Grand Canal Beijing - Hangzhou

The Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal is the oldest man-made waterway, 1,794 kilometers long. It was constructed 770-476 BC. The Grand Canal connects the present cities of Beijing and Hangzhou. It runs through Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei province, Shandong province, Jiangsu province and Zhejiang province and provides an important connection between the Yangtze River valley and the Yellow River valley.

2002, the Hangzhou government initiated a renovation and protective development project to the canal, achieving an improvement of water quality, bridges, old streets and buildings.
