The long corridor is beautifully decorated and many of the paintings critical parts of Chinese history. The boy with the tattoo on his back stuck in my mind.

The Long Corridor was as interesting as all the other sites in Beijing but one of the few that hasn't been maintained or restored to the same degree as the others. Many of the paintings and the paint along the corridors was faded (not surprised considering the daylight and the heat) but it was magnificent nonetheless. Opulence at it's finest.

Well worth the walk - so much art displayed in a peaceful setting. We had amazing weather and a knowledgeable guide who really helped me to understand the reasoning and rationale for this feature.

At every site in china you can take a picnic, and the Chinese do. This saves you money and the need to leave to eat. you can have a picnic... More

the long corridor was part of the Summer Palace and attached several parts of the palace. The overall visit was good and it was a great day when we were there but the boats were not operating due to the winds.

Fascinating visit today but avoid at the weekends as so crowded. Wonderful corridor overlooking the lake and the palace.

A slow stroll down this beautifully painted covered walkway is just want you need after a hectic day of sight seeing. The lake view is lovely.
