If you could compete with the crowds and walk along the corridor, you would see above your head the beautiful paintings and decorations along the whole length of the walk.

This was a cool breezy walk along a wooden arched way. It was very pleasant with seating available along its length, where you could either watch the world go by or see the wonderful lake views.

This would have been a very interesting to visit at a leisurely pace and take in all the history surrounding it. BUT, there's just too many people on the day we went. Do not visit on a weekend and definitely not on school holidays (August). Check with your travel agents what months are the quiet months. You'll enjoy it more.

The Long Corridor at the Summer Palace is very impressive. Unfortunately, over the time it got damaged by the weather and obviously for a long time nobody cared. There are some attempts to repair the damage. But some of the re-drawings are so primitive, childish that it even is an eyesore. Nevertheless, it is worth to see it.

The longest corridor in the world, built so the empress could go for a walk? It was being renovated, so no access.

You could have a stroll along the corridor like the former royalty but unfortunately a lot of the old paintings on the pole/ pillar have faded in colour and the new ones are not as good as the old ones because artists in modern times lack the skills needed.

I think this walkway is something like 400 metres long, and contains beautiful painted woodwork depicting all kinds of scenes. It's one of many sights to see at the Summer Palace complex which is under an hour on the metro from the centre of Beijing, in the north west.

There are so many great scenes throughout the Long Corridor. There are plenty of areas to sit down if you need a break. But take your time walking through it if you can!

It's just a very long hallway, with thousands of perfectly restored or repainted drawings all along it. After the first 100 meters you might decide to walk on the outside of the corridor.
