Any and all corridors on the Palace grounds give off an aura of well being and that life still roams about freely, according to the film footage I see in slow motion of countless rods and orbs of the spirit life there. The local entertainment fits right in with the atmosphere of the experience while visiting the Emperor`s summer retreat.

This is a lovely place, the painting on the pillars and rafters of the corridor are just lovely not that you really get a chance to take it all in as you kind of get swept along, not with crowds as such, but it is busy. One of the things that we loved about the corridor was the fact that... More

The long decorated corridor is a nice attractive haven from rain for a long walk around the palace grounds.

Maybe one of the wonders of the world however must not be missed on a trip to the Summer Palace. Decoration inside the small pavillions depicting different seasons.

A wonderful walk through the corridor is a must when in Beijing. Lots of great photo opportunities with the lake on one side and the temple/gardens on the other.

Come prepared to spend a half day to really enjoy this place. There are plenty of places to eat and drink something while inside. But this is similar to a beautiful park, so take your time to enjoy and relax.

Try to escape from the crowd by coming early to this area. Avoid public holiday. Spring would be nice with all the flowers.

The long corridor plays a minor part in the Summer Palace. You have to go through the Summer Palace to exit through the Long Corridor.

Unbelievable the color of the paint still retained on the ceiling of the corridor. We were told that it was recorded in the world record as the longest corridor decorated corridor. Adorned with scenery paintings from thousand of years ago. A must see for every traveller.

You can't avoid the long corridor if you are visiting the Summer Palace, it's on the premise. Just let your imagination go and imagine the empress and court walking during their time.
