A wonderful piece of art winding it's way along near the lake in the summer palace. Well worth a visit. Lots of other things to see here too.

A good long walk down history lane. Long and very peasant but as always crowded. Amazing work with the painting of the rafters.

This is my favourite part of the palace. Take time to look at the intricate artwork in the corridoor. The jasmin or wisteria (?) Hanging down is a photographers delight.

This is just a beautiful walk with many opportunities for great pics of painted architectural decoration, a lakeside in light and shadow, and wonderful people-watching.

I nearly missed the corridor due to the vast size of the Summer Palace and the fact we took a boat across the lake and then walked around the lake. There was some restoration work going at the time of my visit. Not the best thing in the Palace, but still good.

Spent around 60 minutes on a Nexus tour here. Fascinating place to visit and see. Again, would have liked to spend longer. The place is fascinating and appreciation was heightened by previous visits to Forbidden City and Temple of Heaven with a local guide who knew the history very well.

There is so much art work to see - do remember to look up as well as to the front and sides! There are so many beautiful illustrations and it is nice to see that restoration work is going on to preserve/restore it.

Not as crowded as forbidden city, enjoyable experience. Beautiful views from the longest corridor in the world (728 metres) to the man made lake. Corridor is beautifully painted. It is on world UNESCO list. A must see.

The paintings on the ceiling are just amazing. Every part of the ceiling has different brightly coloured painting. It seems to have been recently refurbished to the current state.
