The corridor is magnificent...and is as it was when the empress strolled along this beautifully intricatly painted covered walkway. Looking to one side you follow the peaceful views of the lake, the bridge to the island and dozens of slow moving boats across the water. On Sundays, friends gather under the protection of the walkway from the sun, to sing... More

How long is this corridor? The amazing artwork! How long did this take to do? And alongside the amazing lake side with all the boats! And the scenery! Wow! Wow! Wow!

If you are going to really appreciate what you are seeing, you need to understand it. Hire a guide, otherwise you will miss out on the fascinating history of the site and of the times.

A HUGE park with tons to see... and buy... but I am an old man... and found it very tiring to walk so much. The day I was there was a public holiday and only about 2 million other visitors where in the park. I was asked to have pictures taken with more than 20 kids! [ I am an... More

A long walk with intricately painted beams, each one telling a different tale. Lovely views along the walk.

If it were shorter, it wouldn't rate the attention it gets. Each small section is very nice, with painted crossbeams and ceiling, but the paint is faded badly in many areas and it does get repetitious as you walk the length of it. The best part is the view of the adjacent lake and some of the Summer Palace buildings... More

Very interesting time spent exploring the summer palace. Because of its popularity you need to be patient and where possible go with the flow. Nice gardens, pleasant walks, impressive mam made lake. The long corridor is pretty impressive. The painted panels are quite striking. Well worth the stop. The better toilets are inside at the far end to the right... More

This was an amazing place, the painting on the wall and the view of the Summer Palace was definitely worth seeing, to think this was all done hundreds of years ago and is still in good condition and vibrant

I also made note of this also when reviewing the Summer Palace. This is a place not to be missed. The Long Corridor is 728 meters long and covered in stunning painted art. It is shaded and travels along a beautiful lake where you can view the famous marble boat and dragon boats, and some pavilions on the nearby hills.... More
