Canada is also a place where many Chinese live. The entire Chinatown is quite huge. The streets are full of Chinese characters. It is also a place built with a century-old history. Chinatown can also buy some big and good things.
I've always wanted to see more of Chinatown in Victoria, but because the tour guide missed the boat and wasted time, the tour time in Chinatown was reduced. It was repeatedly emphasized that Chinatown is so small that it disappears after a turn, so I don't stop in Chinatown. So the so-called Tongjimen only heard one name. Take a few photos from the car window and leave with regret.
Victoria's Chinatown is the earliest Chinatown in Canada. It is located in the center of Victoria. There are two large banners on the streets of Chinatown. There are two dragons on the banners, and then it says: Canada's oldest Chinatown! There is also a Tongji Gate in Chinatown, with "Tongji Gate" written on the door, and couplets. The special feature of Chinatown is the Chinese characters and lanterns that signify auspiciousness! I feel that Victoria’s Chinatown is a bit deserted and there are not many people. Some of the shops on the street are run by foreigners. On the street, I also saw a free newspaper called "The Epoch Times". Judging from the content, it should be run by Chinese in Taiwan! There are some Chinese restaurants on the street! Compared with Vancouver's Chinatown, it is a bit smaller and deserted, but it is much cleaner! As a Chinese, I like to visit Chinatown when I travel abroad.
Eating three plane meals in a row [Piaozui], hungry and sleepy, buy some fruit in Chinatown nearby for a Chinese meal, and then plan! Dinner is all exposed [呲牙] After a meal, digest it, walk around Victoria Harbour
Victoria Chinatown is the earliest Chinatown in Canada. It was built in 1858. Later, with the rapid development of Vancouver, the scenery is not there. However, the "Tongjimen" archway at the entrance of the street records the history of local Chinese struggle together. The scale of Chinatown is small now, mainly in some Chinese restaurants and Chinese supermarkets, and occasionally there are non-Chinese shops. Walking on the streets is often not a Chinese majority.
