A great corridor as it allows you to explore the gardens and admire the views over the lake while still being protected from the elements. Along the way there are 4 octagonal pavilions where you can rest or again admire the vista. That said, getting a seat might prove difficult given the thousands of tourists all doing the same as...

The long corridor is very interesting due to the art and the fact that most of the visitors are Chinese families. There is a beautiful lake for boating and there is a very happy atmosphere. The local people are very friendly and polite.

The artistry that goes into the corridor is unimaginable. Every few steps are different painted scenes along this corridor that were wandered by China's royalty.

The long corridor is just something that you come across while visiting the summer palace so I don't think it deserves a separate listing. However it was still a nice piece of architecture.

Spent a long time looking for this at the summer palace (mostly because the Chinese maps posted around the place are terrible!). Turns out it's just a walkway that follows the north side of Kunming Lake. Nothing special really.

Square your shoulders, fight for your space will the million new best friends you have acquired and wander eyes heaven ward to the beautiful ceiling of the Long Corridor. Newly restored, brightly coloured, it is delightful.....just be careful as you gaze upward not to tread on all the people sitting resting on the floor....

The day we were there was a holiday and it was very crowded. It did however afford us the chance to mingle with the common people and exchange pictures. The interaction between humans regardless of language barriers is priceless. Our tour guide Doreena certainly knew her history!

The area surrounding the Summer Palace has been incredibly commercialized, but once you start to walk along the Corridor, you forget the mindless tourist trap spots along the way. It is an absolute stunning architectural gem.
