Lovely walk and family day out. The long corridor is beautiful south the intricate paintings all throughout. Running along the lake it's also picturesque. Unfortunately it's very popular and trying to get great photos is very difficult.. Overly crowded with tourists especially Chinese tourists that travel in excess of 50 people.. It can get very crowded!

But impossible to see at it's best due to the sheer number of people around, families picnicking, people resting or playing cards and fellow tourists gawking

This corridor is beautifully painted and looks like brand new. The empress used to walk here during Summer time to enjoy the nice views, so will you :)

This is the longest covered walkway in the world. The Four Seasons are depicted in the artwork that covers the ceiling, posts, columns & sides. It is a mile long, I believe. it is set beside a beautiful lake, The history is very interesting. We enjoyed it,,,, Chris & Diana Canada

The paintings under this long hallway were destroyed during the cultural revolution according to our guide. From the memory of many old people the oaintings could be reproduced. Amazing story.

The art work and the shade of this outdoor corridor can't be beat on a hot summer's day visit! Make sure you look up!

Most of the locals took to using it as a sun shade as was very warm on our visit day. So a little difficult to get an actual feel of it. But was ok.

This is actually a portion of the Summer Palace (and I'm not sure you can get to it without going through the Summer Palace) but the artwork on the structure and view of the man-made lake was very pretty. Tickets are required and lines definitely long in July-August.

One side of it is the Kunming lake and the other side is the Longevity Hill, normally it's super crowded but we were lucky to have the corridors relatively empty during our visit.
