The Summer Palace is a former royal palace that covers about 3 square kilometers, most of which is water in the form of a man-made lake called Kunming Lake. It was attacked twice, first by the Anglo-French in 1860 (when the Old Summer Palace was attacked simultaneously as well) and the second time during the Boxer Rebellion in 1900; it was rebuilt both times. It was the royal summer resort palace, hence its name. One of its principal features is the Long Corridor, which was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest corridor in the world.
