The longest recorded corridor in the world. There are paintings all along that tell the story of the Chinese history.

We visited on day that had snow earlier...it was quite brisk even though we were rugged up well.During the middle of winter there is ice skating on the lake to watch, however by February the ice has become to thin...so not a lot to see. We would have been bettet off visitong the Palace itself

This long corridor which was only built for the Emperor or Empress to walk along at the Summer Palace was beautiful .looking up at the amazing hand painted ceiling and upper sides was amazing !

To imagine that the empress walked through the corridor watching the different pictures in each section of the corridor and with the view of the lake on one side must have been quite extraordinary. Nowadays it still is.

This was such an interesting area and all the painted walkways were awesome but it would have been nice to have an explanation of some of the paintings

The Summer Palace area in general is worth a visit. The history/story of the Long Corridor is intriguing. The art work along the corridor was worth viewing.

What I found amazing about these corridors is the individuality of each painting, all hand crafted. We could not find any that we're alike despite looking

Summer palace is one of my favorite parks in Beijing. Walking along the corridor, watching the beautiful painting inside, would be very nice. But normally it is crowded by tourist groups. Trying to visit there in the early morning or late afternoon in non peak season.

I have to take exception with TA dedicating a separate entry to this structure: it is entirely contained within the Summer Palace (which I reviewed elsewhere) and admission is included in the admission price for the S.P. It is like having an entry for a museum and a separate entry for each painting inside it. One could say I really... More
