We took a very long walk along the long corridor. Here, you should observe the paintings on the ceiling. I guess there are no repeated picture and every scene tells a different story.
A huge place.
We walked for several hours but only manged to cover a teeny weeny bit.
It'a lovely and lake was frozen when we were there during winter, so we managed to walk on the frozen lake!
In the summer palace, the longest corridor would be a great place to relax and to take some pictures. Observe also the distinct paintings on the corridor.
Located on the north bank of Kunming Lake
Long Gallery stretches 728 meters and contains about 8000 colorful paintings
This palace is nice, specially at spring.
But what i liked there the most was the paints on the rafters. So walk the head up (just be careful ...)
It was called the long Corridor because it was long. There's over 700m of corridor, filled with mythical paintings and scenes.
This is another shot from the inner Summer Palace.
I definitely loved this small corner of the palace. There is the Emperor's bedroom in the building left of the pic.
The Summer Palace (In winter!)
Observe the way of the crouching tiger, sitting on water technique. It takes years of devotred practice!!
Here's one last look at the SUMMER PALACE's frozen KUNMING LAKE - the summer home of the Imperial family, here in winter.
In The Summer Palace, artificial lake, ship and bridge are beautifully arranged in the large site and all of which directed coolness.
Prepare for a long walk . The park is big and distances are long between the buildings . Foresee at least ' to ( hours to visit.
Do you like irony?! Empress Dowager Ci Xi syphoned funds destined for the Imperial Navy to build her boat of marble.
The summer palace is beautiful. With many interesting buildings and a huge man made lake.
Very nice way to spend an afternoon.
We spent a very refreshing day at the Summer Palace outside of the centre of Beijing. There is a lake where you cannot swim but you can rent a boat. Also it's nice just to walk around.
