The Xixi Wetland Park has an extensive history and is located on the southern tip of the longest and oldest canal in the world, the Hangzhou-Beijing Canal.
Dragon boats take you around in the network of rivers and show you a new side of Hangzhou, also known as the paradise city of China.
The total length of the Grand Canal is roughly 1,770 km (1,114 miles), the oldest and longest man-made canal in China. It is believed to be the longest canal in the world.
The oldest parts of the canal date back to the 5th century BC, although the various sections were finally combined into one during the Sui Dynasty (581–618 AD).
