Grand Canal becomes a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014. The oldest parts of the canal date back to the 5th century BC.
During the Yuan dynasty (1271–1368) the capital of China was moved to Beijing, the Grand Canal was lengthened to about
1800km, linking Beijing and Hangzhou of Yangtze River Delta with a direct north-south waterway. Since 1291, as the
