About the Book

A new Unknown City book for adventurous travelers: Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, the “Garden City” full of English expatriates whose polite exterior belies an intriguing past. Victoria has long been a city of contradictions; the home of the unfortunately phrased “newly wed and nearly dead” is also where you will find one of North America’s oldest Chinatowns; where tales of secret satanic cults abound; and where the flowers bloom so early in the year, it’s no surprise that Victoria, just north of Seattle, is regularly named one of the world’s (yes, the world’s) top tourist destinations. It also includes tips on the city’s best dining, shopping, nightlife, and little-known landmarks.
