Step back into Victoria’s rich history at the inner harbour, with the famous Empress Hotel and the magnificent Legislature Building. But if you are really into history, visit the Royal BC Museum for the natural and human history of British Columbia. As one of the top ten museums of Canada, the Royal BC Museum will surely entertain you for a big part of the day.
Enriched with new information, continue your day on to the Fisherman’s Wharf. This funky place is home to some unique floating homes and it’s a great place to eat some lunch and watch all kinds of sea animals. Walk along the harbour to downtown Victoria for a little bit of sightseeing. Check out Bastion Square and Trounce Alley before heading to Canada’s oldest Chinatown where you can see its ornate gate and the very narrow Fan Tan alley. It also boasts many options for dinner such as Bao and Varsha.
And may we suggest the QV cafe & bakery for dessert? Insider tip: finishing their Mount Everest cake gives you the same satisfaction as climbing the real thing.
