Hello Mr. Lin
To keep our visitors informed of what is changing we keep a blog of significant changes to this web site
. We add an entry after a major overhaul or reorganization but principally to advertise that a new page has been added to the site - it is hard to keep track now there are over 200 of them.
The Grand or Emperor's canal
is the longest canal system in the world. It links Hangzhou
in the south to Beijing
in the north - over 1,100 miles. Designed to carry huge amounts of rice from the rich lands of the south to the arid north it proved to be China's life line for over a thousand years. The canal enabled China a transportation system free from the threats of storms and pirates.
Chinasage is a new web resource, started in 2012, pages will be added, enhanced and re-formatted regularly. Please check back soon for updated information about China.
