Today, Victoria's Chinatown is an intriguing and colourful mix of old and new. But behind the restored facades are the remains of secret passageways and alleys built by a community trying to escape from racism.
 In recent years, Canada's first Chinatown was restored, and new life was breathed into an area of the city that was in a state of decline.
 The once-thriving centre of Chinese culture has seen many of its inhabitants move on, integrating into the larger community. Even today, the secret Chinatown is known only to a select few. The history and mystery of Chinatown still fascinate.
