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.
