Beautiful decor

Visit here early in the day before the queues, preferably with a guide to explain it all. The architecture and colourful decor are exquisite.

The Long Corridor is VERY crowded. Difficult to take any photos so don't even try. But the painting on the walls and ceiling are incredible and many have stories. And the covered Corridor is along the lake (manmade!) at the Summer Palace so the views are very nice. It was also lightly raining the day we went to Summer Palace... More

Like most of the tourist areas of Beijing, the intricacy of the painting was amazing. Very nice and beautiful.

Our tour guide told us that this is in the Guinness book of records for being the longest corridor. It's definitely a long walk but the pictures that are painted throughout are amazing. I don't remember how many thousand pictures are painted along the roofline. Nice walk though.

If you vist the Summer Palace, then you will be able to see this beautiful corridor. The paintings and the ornaments on rhe roof reminds me of our Moroccan decorative drawings and forms that we find in Riads and palaces.

If you're visiting the Summer Palace, it is essential you see the Long Corridor and the depictions of Chinese stories. Some interesting history about the restoration process, and truly a marvel to see.

The Long Corridor at the Summer Palace is phenomenal. I think it is a kilometer long and is a covered walkway. The roof is painted with hundreds of lovely paintings of stories. There are seats all the way along so that you can rest or just sit and admire the artistry. Well worth the visit.

The longest gallery of paintings painted on each panel inside a covered walkway. Just another part of the whole of the Summer Palace.

Hidden gems in mini paintings (of Classical Chinese legends and mythical stories) along the long corridor. You just need to stroll slowly, take in the view and look above.
