"Fan Tan Alley" Chinatown Tip by Carmanah

Chinatown, Victoria: 3 reviews and 3 photos

  The narrow Fan Tan Alley in Chinatown
by Carmanah

Favorite thing: Visit Fan Tan Alley! Here's what it looks like at the entrance to this magical little alley. You walk down this narrow brick alley at first. In the middle of the alley it opens up and there are at least a dozen little shops. We looked at a wonderful music shop selling all kinds of instruments. We also looked through a store selling used records (of the 12' type). There were hippy stores, clothing stores among other cool shops. It's definitely one of Victoria's secrets! (No pun intended). ;)

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
