Wuxi's preservation of historic Grand Canal revives local traditions

As the world's longest artificial waterway, the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, with a total length of 1,794 kilometers, has made significant contributions to the socioeconomic and cultural development in China's north and south.

With a history of more than 2,500 years, it has nurtured many prosperous cities and towns along its banks. The section of the ancient canal in Wuxi, Jiangsu province, holds a particularly important and unique position in the history of its development.

The city itself was born along the canal, and so in recent years, the local government has emphasized the canal's protection, inheritance and the utilization of its cultural heritage.
