The Nanyang Ancient Town

When coming to Jining to understand the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, you have to check out one of the top four ancient canal towns – Nanyang Town. This ancient town is located in the northwest of Weishan County, where the Grand Beijing-Hangzhou Canal cuts through the ancient town.

During the Ming and Qing Dynasty (1368-1911 AD), the town flourished with many shops. As a key commercial post, it had attracted countless merchants, and even Emperor Qianlong (reigned in 1711-1799 & 1735-1796 as emperor) had also frequented here a few times as well.
