Grand Canal (Jīngháng dàyùnhé) Review

Suzhou is threaded by a network of narrow waterways, with an outer moat surrounding its ancient center. The canals that now seem quaint were once choked with countless small boats ferrying goods between the city's merchants. All of these channels connect eventually to imperial China's main conduit of trade and travel, the Grand Canal, which passes through the town's southern outskirts.
