Although China Town in Victoria is not large is it a very interesting place to visit. The food is fantastic and the people friendly.
The entrace gate to Chinatown is impressive but thats about it. Not much to it and it is right on the edge of the "less desirable side" of town so stay alert. I've probably been in Chinese restaurants that are nearly as big as this area. If you have ever watched the movie Bird on a Wire with Goldie Hawn... More
Just a quick 7 blocks from the harbor, chinatown issmaller than most other chinatowns I've visited (NYC, Toronto, Boston, Hong Kong), the aroma , the fresh fruit stands, roasted pig in the window is all still the same. The dim sum was great and don't forget to take a quick stroll down Fan Tan Alley!
Chinatown may be small in comparison to other major cities but there is so much to offer in the way of dining, shopping and unique groceries. A walk through the Fan Tan Alley is a must to do. Lunch at any of the Chinese restaurants where Dim Sum is served is also a must. We find ChinaTown easy to walk... More
It may be rated the 2nd largest, but by far is the BEST! So much culture to see, and experience the true Chinese people in their own environment. So much cultural history. What an exciting place to see!
Chinatown has a magical feel to it, the streets are lined with lanterns and bright lights and signage all around. The food was incredibly good! There are smaller gangways/alleys which lead to a hidden world of shops - highly recommend spending an afternoon in Chinatown!
Not much of a China town to see and one restaurant which I have already reviewed gave me food poisoning and didnt care nor take responsibility. One nice area of this China Town is a place called "Fan Tan Ally" which has a rich history and an awesome gift shop. If you are going to see China Town and think... More
dirty, dingy, scary, tiny, ugly and smell, this is how i would describe china 'town'. it is like something out of a horror movie, you just think you have landed in the wrong place at the wrong time. the only nice thing about it is the red dragon on the street corner just before the entrance. and yet again, china...

A very interesting Chinatown, oldest and largest in Canada. Home to many shops selling tourist type souvenirs but pretty reasonably priced. Many restaurants in this area too which looked pretty busy. The items in the stores all begin to look the same after about thirty minutes. Also home to some very interesting back alleys to explore.
While it is neat to see a China Town, this one is more old stores than sights. After one spice and produce market you've seen it. Not as great as San Francisco. Even the locals say it So-so.
