What a gorgeous place. The scenic view is spectacular. The trees are gorgeous. Everywhere you look, is a feast for your eyes. Very colorful . Need to take your time to walk around and make sure that you don't miss all the architecture and places to walk around.

Colors are still bright and the detail and artwork is outstanding. No inside pictures but we managed to get a few. Another must see on your travels

The half mile long corridor is painted with different scenes taken from Chinese history and culture. Originally it was painted especially for the Empresses when she had grown to old to travel to other parts of China. The thinking was China would be brought to her...We were told there are 10,000 images in all. I was somewhat sceptical about the... More

It is really a very LONG corridor. Beautifully restored. Excellent for when the weather turns. The corridor basically follows the lake round a bit. When you are there you can imagine you are walking on the same path as the Empress Dowager :)

There are different paintings on the roof but otherwise, just a corridor. Maybe if you have a guide, there might be some stories, we didn't hire any.

Went here on a wet Saturday morning. Full of locals and Chinese tourists but absolutely worth walking the whole length. The many unique paintings along the length of the corridor as well as the beautiful seasonal pavilions along the walk are a real treat even in bad weather as are the buildings on entry into the park and at the...

Trying to get enough space to take photos here without other tourists is very difficult. One can only be amazed at the quality of the paintings on the wooded walkway. This was the work of many years by great artists. An amazing place.

I went to Beijing on business in May 2016. The Long Corridor is part of the Summer Palace. Under ideal circumstances, it would be good to walk slowly and examine the ceiling and the various paintings. However, it is often very crowded with people. While walking on the Long Corridor, you get a good view of the lake.
