The Dragon Lady had this walkway constructed in the grounds of The Summer Palace. It is mostly covered so that she could take her daily walk in any weather. She was a very self-indulgent person.

There is not much one can say or add to what China stands for in the tradional sense. Loved it so if you have the chance go. Al the cultural places in Beijing are wonderful so visit them all. stay at least 5 days so as to not cut yourself short on any of the sights. A big tick.

This walkway is absolutely gorgeous. It is very ornately decorated with bright colours. Walking the length of it is a must. It's very tranquil and you can stop and sit on the sides as you go. This is a must see in the Summer Palace.

I visited Summer palace long back but good memories of the place are still fresh in mind. You walk parallel to a lake in this ancient, colourful wooden corridor enjoying many other architectural attractions around, in and along the lake. The best part of this and all other Chinese heritage sites is that those are beautifully maintained and made visitor... More

It's exactly as it says, a long corridor. Lots of detail gone into the artwork on here. Each bit tells a story, our guide explained some of them. Quite busy so it's difficult to stop and see if all, mind you if you did you'd be there for ages! Definitely worth having a look.

If you are observant enough, along this very pleasant and memorable walk along the Corridor, you will see countless paintings which are stimulating in their aesthetics and technique. A truly staggering passageway.

If you are going to the Summer Pal you have to go via this. It's relatively attractive but, as it's the accepted way to reach the SP, you'll share it with lots of others. It also leads to the marble boat - that isn't all marble. Three in one - of varying degrees of worthiness.
