The Long Corridor

Beautiful colors, serene atmosphere. Really a gem in Beijing! People playing games. The Summer Palace was our favorite palace.

It is a beautiful corridor. What caught my eye were the drawings on top of the columns which represented old legends from Chinese tradition. However, I would´ve loved it if each drawing or at least a selection of them had an explanation about the story.

Not only you can enjoy whole summer palace. Walking at the longest corridor in the world is quite fun too. You can see the man-make lake on the site. Beautiful decorative corridor. After you finish long walk, you feel like you have arrived to Summer Palace already. Such a beautiful places.

As the name states, its long, very long, but a welcome retreat from the hot sun outside. Its also crowded, but the experience most enjoyable, with lots to see, including artwork on the walls and ceilings, as well as people!

An outdoor corridor, though, with interesting things to see and experience along the way. Lots of people in and around this attraction and it was nice to get some shade from the sun during this part of the visit.

This is a part of the Summer Palace you are likely to visit if you take a walk along the northern edge of Kunming Lake. This part does not require an extra ticket, but is definitely worth the walk. I liked the beautiful paintings, especially the nature paintings, on the rafters. This is also a part of the Summer palace... More

A unique element at the Summer Palace, with exceptional detailing on the beams and columns. It provides an interesting walk from the island drop-off and pick-up points.

This corridor is about a half mile long and has over 14,000 individual paintings along the way. It was really impressive and we took many photos. It is part of the Summer Palace, so I'm not sure why it has it's own listing, but it's one of the best parts!

couldnt stop taking photos of the amazing handpainted woodwork which surrounded me. Lots of people hanging out, knitting groups and mahjong groups and others playing cards and artists and people exercising. Everyone was so friendly. The whole place was well worth a visit but expecially don't miss this!
