Examine the ancient Chinese architecture and ornaments as you pass through the popular Long Gallery, which was included in the Guinness Book of Records in 1990 because of its abundance of Su-style colored paintings.

  • Beauty in all its splendour. Take the corridor is a pleasant experience, can observe the details in the paintings, the view from there is privilebiada, the gardens are beautiful and the sidewalks are made of mosaics with flowers. Transportation to get to the corridor is a note with dragon-shaped. The route is very beautiful and to the output you can see lotus flowers over the waters of the nearby canal. It is unforgettable!
