The Forbidden City Within Victoria Response

Chinatown!  For many years the mere mention of the word conjured up visions of a forbidden place: underground tunnels, secret gambling dens, hidden opium rooms.  Although many of the elements which created the sense of mystery assiociated with Victoria's Chinatown have long since vanished, the mystique remains.  Intricate networks of narrow passageways and claustrophobic courtyards are still found behind the commercial facades of many old buildings in Chinatown.
