The summer palace was very busy the day we visited, but well worth the visit.....I loved it and so well maintained. The 8000 plus paintings on the long corridor was beautiful, and so much history

While inside the Summer Palace you will find the unique Long Corridor. Not busy when we went but it is on Saturdays. It was specially built to view part of the lake and hill whilst under cover.

The Long Corridor is very unique and the gardens beautiful I enjoyed the scenery and it was busy but there were not too many people which is also good for Beijing. It is one of those places you need to see when in Beijing but you don't have to spend too long there.

I visited in July, so liked the shade and seeing all the local retirees enjoying such a beautiful public space for their cards and poker games.

Basically the Versailles of the East. Such a breath of fresh air (literally) from the chaos outside.
