Came to see this place because it is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Found out that this canal has more than 2000 years of history and reflect the canal culture of Hangzhou.

We wanted a quiet morning after all the business of our tour and found this a great and intersting way to spend 2 hours. The Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal is the longest canal in the world by far. We walked along the canal after crossing a pedestrian bridge.

Took the water bus from Wuflin Square, only 3 yuan

The Gongchen Bridge is museum central, and a nice area to stroll around

Make sure you visit the Canal Museum
But there are plenty of explanation boards around

The Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal is the longest canal in the world by far. There are cruises that go along the canal in Hangzhou, but the "official" (sort of) viewing spot from land seems to be the area around the Gongchen Bridge, where the Grand Canal Museum is located, along with several other museums, including the China Umbrella Museum and the China Fan Museum.

You can walk over the Gongchen Bridge and gaze at the canal waters. There are also shops and places to eat at the site.

For many years I have wanted to visit the Grand Canal.

My partner booked an evening cruise for us; it was delightful! The canal is beautifully lit at night, making the trip an even more enjoyable experience.

However, for me the main point was that I was travelling for at least a short distance along the oldest canal in the world, having been started around the 5th century BCE and finally fully connected around 600 CE. It was, and is, an amazing feat of engineering.

Seeing the real China, how they lived shopped and 1000 are still living that way, well worth going on this tour. The canals in Hangzhou and Shanghai are so different do both, a cultural experience

When you consider when this was built - amazing. Is nearly 1800 Kms long - from Hangzhou to Beijing . Great to see the full barges going up stream and returning empty. Water taxi is a great way to see more.

You really get to experience history on this trip. It was a great way to peak into local lives and marvel at the construction of this canal

interesting way of understanding the commerce and trade by the river and how Hangzhou flourished as a city. The riverboat is great if you can go to the upper deck and breathe the scent of the river. Do not miss the river museum and eat at one of the restaurants along the river and go for a good walk along the side promenade after you meal befor eheading back to the frenetic city

The views of the river and its houses on the sidewalks along a park are beautiful. The entrence and schedule of the ferry are difficult to find. Less crowded that at West Lake.
