Fan Tan Alley is an alley in Victoria, British Columbia's Chinatown. It runs south from Fisgard Avenue to Pandora Avenue in the block between Government Street and Store Street. It was originally a gambling district with restaurants, shops, and opium dens. Today it is a tourist destination with many small shops including a barber shop, art gallery, Chinese cafe and apartments. It is the narrowest street in Canada. At its narrowest point it is only 0.9 metres (35 in) wide. It was recognized by the Canadian Register of Historic Places in 2001. [1]
