Ling Canal, Merryland and Cat Mountain
Ling Canal

Ling Canal, situated at north of Xinan, is 58 KM far from Guilin. Built in 214B.C. (Qin Dynsty 33), which is called Qin Canal.

And people also call it as Steep Canal.
Ling Canal is an ancient canal connecting Xian River in Hunan province with Li River in Guangxi province. The canal is regarded as three biggest hydraulic works in Qing Dynsty, the rest two are Dujiang Dam and Zheguo Canal. Furthermore, it is also one the oldest canal in the world. A famous poet in Qin named Yuanmu once wrote,"the water in Xinan is so clear and limpid that you can see the shadow of the mountains in the water last minute you have just seen the peak of the mountain suddenly you found your boat was just passing the peak in the water" .

This canal connects the Xiang River of Hunan Province with the Gui River of Guangxi. The first flows northward toward the Yangtze River and the latter southward toward the China Sea .

It is possible to sail from Guangzhou by traveling up the Xi and Gui Rivers to this canal and passing through it, proceed down the Xiang River to the Yangtze, hence to the Grand Canal and even as far as Peiping without getting off the boat.

In bygone days before railroads and motor highways, this elaborate canal was of great assistance to China 's transport and unity. Construction was started two centuries before Christ and was a the farsighted project of the great Emperor Chin Shi Huang Ti, who built China 's Great Wall.
