Tianjin to Develop Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal-themed Tour Packages

According to the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA), Tianjin Municipal City will offer new travel products for visitors to the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal. The 112 mile-long Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal flows through 30 cities in China including Beijing, Tianjin, Shandong, Hebei, Jiangsu, and Zhejiang. The south part of the Canal starts from Jiuxuanzha in Jinghai County, and the north part starts from Muchangzha of Wuqing district, flowing through seven districts and counties.

The Canal connects China’s northern and southern regions, helping to promote the development of the economy and inter-country travel. The Canal has played an important role in China’s heritage and now boasts a museum, the China Grand Canal Museum, along its banks in Hangzhou. Tianjin city will accelerate the development of activities along and on the canal to allow visitors to experience this ancient waterway, which is often referred to as the “Great Wall of China on the water.”
