  Composed of a suspension bridge in the south and a Cable Bridge in the north, Runyang Bridge is a rarity in the world. The main span of the southern part reaches 1,490 meters, which makes it the longest suspension bridge in Asia and the third in the world till now.

  Grand Canal

  The Yangtze River intersects the Grand Canal at Zhenjiang, which forms the biggest golden cross water system in China. The length of Grand Canal in Zhenjiang is 42 kilometers. Since Tang Dynasty, Zhenjiang has been an important place for waterway and roadway. The poem “a boat flowing three thousand miles sees ten thousand houses with lights along the river” shows a picture of flourishing Zhenjiang along the Grand Canal.
