Hangzhou Grand Canal section is one the few sections that are still being used. And this is great because it means that you can take a boat trip. That will be a pleasant journey, but! My suggestion would be to walk along the canal from Gongchen Bridge all the way to Wulin Square after 6 PM when they put the lights on. Grand Canal is not very popular with tourists yet, mainly locals come here for walks, so you can escape the crowds.
