In June, the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal is rippling with blue waves and green plants on both sides of the embankment. This is in harmony with the reputation of the "Suzhou and Hangzhou Paradise".The Hangzhou section of the Grand Canal now maintains the millennium charm of the ancient canal and incorporates modern elements of beauty.

Landscape, cultural, and ecological rivers featuring the canal have become “new landmarks” for the display of Hangzhou’s yesterday, today, and tomorrow and are now becoming the “Hangzhou Seine”, a combination of traditional and modern culture.Four years after the successful application for the list of world heritages of China’s Grand Canal, the opening ceremony of the second Hangzhou Grand Canal World Cultural Heritage Conservation Week has been held at the southernmost part of the Grand Canal, unveiling the mystery of the protection of the Grand Canal. As a grand gathering for the protection and transmission of the canal culture, Hangzhou’s Grand Canal World Cultural Heritage Conservation Week has attracted numerous canal city representatives, cultural heritors and well-known artists to the scene.

Chai Shimin, deputy secretary of the Xiacheng District Committee, said that the Grand Canal Culture is a microcosm of China’s long history and splendid culture, and it is also an important carrier for the inheritance and development of Chinese civilization. Xiacheng District is the area where the Grand Canal flows through the main city, creating a unique geographical advantage that cannot be duplicated in the Xiacheng District.
