The Emperor's Canal

The Emperor's Canal

China

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.
