And interesting part of the summer palace to walk along

And interesting part of the summer palace, that was nice to walk along when it wasn't too crowded. And seeing the ancient pictures, and looking across the lake was nice

It's interesting to see all the paintings and the wooden structure. It's long and crowded, no need to walk the full length of it inside.

The long corridor is stunning because all paintings made in the wood are so delicate and tell us part of the Chinese traditional literature characters stories. If you read " three kingdoms ", "Monkey King“ and know a little beat about Chinese poetry your visit will gain different colors. But if not have a good look at the paintings in... More

I don't know how many individually painted scenes there are above and along the insides and outsides of the long corridor, but it must be thousands. I could imagine so many commissioned painters creating these beautiful scenes. Like a couple other reviewers, I could also imagine the Empress Dowager taking her daily walk along this corridor, rain or shine. It... More

This long corridor goes along a lake and it is so peaceful and beautiful. It is all painted with scenes overhead at each crossbeam. It is a very long corridor and there were a lot of people (almost all Chinese), so it became a little crowded, but it was one of my favorite parts of the Summer Palace.

So cool to walk on same corridor where the empress and emperor walked so they could be in the shade. Painting each have theme and you need an expert to explain. Ends near dragon boat which you should take back. Crowded but great bring camera and be prepared to walk. We loved this tranquil place away from the 23 million... More

The painting are beautiful and the view on the lake is great everything was made to pleased the Emperor and his family. Can not imagine the time that those artists took to paint the stained glass and the wood. The garden around are also very beautiful

Whilst traveling through Beijing, we visited the Summer Palace and walked along the 728m Long Corridor. The corridor separates the man made lake from the man made mountain and was built especially for the Empress. It is beautifully hand painted with stories from generations ago detailed on many of the pillars. The colours are beautiful and vibrant and it is... More

The trip was really nice and interesting until, we enter the corridor. The places are so crowded with different trip groups, couldnt even find a place to put your feets.. but to really make the most of it, it's better to go during the month of march, where most of the places will be more freed and you have a...
