Everything about the summer palace is enchanting. The long corridor is wonderful as is all of the area. Something all tourists should see. If wanting a quick snack on the way to the metro there are lots of places including a MacDonalds but do not use the loos there they are pretty disgusting, doesn't anyone ever clean them. MacD should... More

This is one of longest corridor you would have encountered anywhere. At other hand you have small similar corridor in Chapel Bridge in Lucerne Switzerland. Both are same in concept however Swiss one has beautiful paintings and Chinese corridor though painted fully is getting faded and needs restoration. In the end end you have a marble boat which is in... More

Have visited this a few times over the years. Am sorry to see it slowly deteriorate over the years. Visit it now while it is still in decent shape.

The artwork along the corridor is just mesmerising - a beautiful walk on a sunny day……..even on a cold grey day !

My husband wanted to spend more time seeing the paintings, as each one is different. This is the covered walkway that the Dragon Lady had built for her after dinner strolls. The paintings are wonderful! Crowded during Chinese New Year. If looking for tour guides, we highly recommend Wendy Wu agency.

This is a lovely part of the Summer Palace but it was very very very busy when we went so could not really spending much time looking at the paintings as you just get pushed along with the crowd. We were the only westerners there and found it strange how the Chinese just push passed each other even in a... More

This was one of the best features of the Summer Palace and of our week in China. This is worth some extra time and would be even better with a knowledgeable guide.

Don't miss this. Great place to visit - very peaceful even with the crowds. Short boat trips also available. Paintings may be a bit faded - but wouldn't you be if you were that old!

well you need to include this in any tour of China, the renovations make this a bland offering, once you look past the mass produced rook tiles one gets a true sense of the site

Friend didn't tell me of his intentions, so, took me to The Long Corridor. I have no eye for beauty; so really it was a waste of time! This is not my thing, it is still Yes, this was very well constructed, the paintings were still visible from days of old, it has historical significance, but to me, it was... More
