The longest corridor apparently in the world according to our tour guide! It was long and crowded, but worth visiting, and feel the spirit of the Dragon Lady.

Visited the Summer Palace as part of an Exodus tour of China. It was fascinating to see all the different activities that the Long Corridor is used for. A lovely way to see the Chinese people in their everyday activities.

The corridor is quite long and every section has very detailed paintings of different themes and stories. I loved a motif dedicated to the Peony, it was a bit faded, but for the most part this corridor is being well preserved. Do take your time and admire each 3 foot section.

Any and all corridors on the Palace grounds give off an aura of well being and that life still roams about freely, according to the film footage I see in slow motion of countless rods and orbs of the spirit life there.

This is a lovely place, the painting on the pillars and rafters of the corridor are just lovely not that you really get a chance to take it all in as you kind of get swept along, not with crowds as such, but it is busy. One of the things that we loved about the corridor was the fact that... More

The long decorated corridor is a nice attractive haven from rain for a long walk around the palace grounds.

Maybe one of the wonders of the world however must not be missed on a trip to the Summer Palace. Decoration inside the small pavillions depicting different seasons.

A wonderful walk through the corridor is a must when in Beijing. Lots of great photo opportunities with the lake on one side and the temple/gardens on the other.

Come prepared to spend a half day to really enjoy this place. There are plenty of places to eat and drink something while inside. But this is similar to a beautiful park, so take your time to enjoy and relax.

Try to escape from the crowd by coming early to this area. Avoid public holiday. Spring would be nice with all the flowers.
