Chinatown in Victoria is by far the oldest Chinatown in Canada.
I personally do like historical buildings and towns; they have an atmosphere often lacking in newer cities and this Chinatown is like it was with a famous narrow alley "Fan Tan Alley".
After the arrival of the railroad in Vancouver, Vancouver became the largest Chinatown in Canada, but Victoria still provides the most historical buildings as the town never had a big fire. Around Chinatown there are numerous old buildings that are well preserved and worthwhile seeing. The Market Place that covers a whole block is one of them.
