“Well worth Exploring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2009

Guarded by the Gates of Harmonious Interest, Victoria's Chinatown is one block full of great sights to explore.

Look for Fan Tan Alley and it's tucked-away shops and try to imagine it's history of opium dens and brothels. Definately poke around in Fan Tan Gallery for beautiful textiles and gifts and stop at Panacea for a delicious bubbletea.

“Little bit of China”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2003

I was glad we went, but it is so small you could easily pass right by it. Knowing a little about the historical background will make it more interesting.
