The corridor which The Empress Dowager Cixi had her stroll. Take time to appreciate the different artworks on the corridor. P.S. very cooling for a stroll.

Quite a way to live back then when you had a covered walkway to keep your royal head dry. The artwork inside is stunning.

If your really interested in looking into the local culture this is a great place to start. It's full of interesting building works both old and restored.

The Long Corridor at the Summer Palace is very beautiful! Very well looked after, you can see restoration process all over it. Be aware it gets very crowded and the best place to take pictures is when you walk further down, avoid the beginning.

Highlight in the Summer Palace with ancient paintings on the eaves, cross beams covered 4000 years of Chinese culture visual telling, also the main elements of Chinese/Oriental garden design. Sometime crowed during the tourist season.

The recklessness of the Empress , spending money intended for the navy, priced artworks along this corridor and the amazing marble boat- worth seeing and admiring, whilst being appalled at what the Empress did so selfishly.

Incredible to see what a man built for his mother to enjoy. The history behind it was very impressive.

A nice walk through the summer palace with great photos of the frozen lake and sitting there just looking at the people with different cultures.

Great skills in rebuilding this after the British burnt it down along with most of Beijing . A very romantic location even in sub zero temperatures
