Slow down and look

Not only was the corridor in a beautiful location but the artwork at each pagoda and on the sides was beautiful as well. There is lots to see if you take the time to look.......

Do not forget to walk through this corridor at the Summer Palace. The Summer Palace can be overwhelming with all of the people picniking and hoarding by the water but this intricately painted corridor is very beautiful and characteristic of Chinese artwork.

This was a lovely corridor that stretch almost throughout the entire summer palace gardens. It had many small detailed paintings painted on the ceiling. It utilizes all the regular royal motifs and colours one can find in other royal areas such as the Forbidden city. Something to see

Great if it is really hot and sunny out to cool down. The painting on the corridor is impressive. It's nothing too special but the amount of detail is amazing.

Both beautiful and amazing. Runs along a majestic lake and the walk presents wonderful views. The paintings depict a great story. Even in early Spring on a rather cold morning, the crowds were significant so I imagine it would be very crowded in the warmer months.
