Les Chan: Your guide through Victoria's historic Chinatown
Chinatown residents share their home with Victoria's annual three million visitors from around the world. It's all grist for the mill for Les Chan, raconteur, cooking instructor, artisan and guide.

Chan is a popular tour guide on the convention circuit. And as Chinatown's unofficial ambassador, he regales visitors with its wild and wicked history.


In 1996, the federal government officially recognized Victoria Chinatown's historic significance
when it was designated a Canadian Heritage District.
