Fan Tan Alley runs between Fisgard Avenue and Pandora Avenue in Victoria's Chinatown. The backstreet was once known as a notorious gambling area, but today it stands as a local landmark. Considered the narrowest street in Canada at just under one meter (40 inches) wide, Fan Tan Alley houses several small business and eateries for tourists to enjoy. You'll find a barber shop, art gallery, various stores, apartments, offices, and tasty mouthwatering fare here. Wander through this unassuming attraction and explore for yourself!
