    To retain the British tradition, High Tea is served in many establishments including the famous Empress Hotel, B & B's, The Royal Brisith Columbia Museum and the Butchart Gardens. Saw prices from $20-$46 per person.

    This is probably true in any tourist city, but it is important to remember that people do actually live here and sometimes don't have time to deal with gawking tourists. My pet peeve is when I am trying to get somewhere and a group stops dead in the middle of the sidewalk to take a picture of something. I'm all for taking pictures (there are many beautiful sites in Victoria) but please move off to the side of the walkway so people can get by you!

    In victoria we have two seasons: Wintertime and BBQ-time.

    When the sun is out it's time to gather at the waterfront and start the BBQ.

    A tradition of the British Isles, bagpipe players can be seen on Victoria's inner harbor from time to time.

  • Street light in China Town

    by vividvivian Written Oct 23, 2003

    Red is lucky colour to Chinese people. Even the bin is also in red. :D "Trash Can" in Chinese also tells people that they are in China Town :)

    many fast food can be found on the street, people like going there and get hotdogs rather than go inside restaurants/ fast food shop.

    There's a lot of asiatic people. In some places, like the China Town, you can find people speaking in their languages but don´t worry, they can understand English.

    I think it is pretty unique to have this totem pole, and other cool sculpture, at the entrance to the police station (on Quadra Street).

    (I imagine) there really is a bit of ole England in Victoria, mainly in the form of weekend fairs, dancers, street musicians and park concerts. Though I haven't been to England yet.
