Fan Tan Alley
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Between Pandora Ave and Fisgard St
Chinatown's Fan Tan Alley was originally home to opium dens. After opium was made illegal, it became a popular gambling district. It remains a popular destination, although today it primarily features shops.
Just 35 inches wide at one point, it is the narrowest street in Canada.
