(4.4/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
Long Corridor at the Summer Palace impresses visitors as an imperial walkway covered in 14,000 elaborately painted decorations. Constructed in 1750 as a part of the World Heritage-listed Summer Palace, the corridor stretches 728 m (2,388 ft) and links the attractions located at the foot of Longevity Hill. 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. Besides exploring the gardens, pavilions, and courtyards, you can also find an octagonal three-story observation tower to see a panoramic view of the lavish imperial compound. Put Long Corridor at the Summer Palace and other Beijing attractions into our Beijing tour planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beautifully painted florals on each of the over beams, unfortunately time has faded a lot of them. Would have been fantastic in the days of the Emperor 
  • there is so much to see in all the art work so take the time to view the whole length which is about a slow 30 minute walk 
  • Visit who deserves to spend an afternoon in a park where the quiet comes over you. Superb Gallery decorated with paintings in multiple themes. Place to give you the Chinese families.
