When Chinese native Ada Wang isn't working as an education assistant, she takes to Chinatown's enigmatic streets to educate the public on the district's vibrant history. As a guide for Oldest Chinatown Walking Tours, the long-term Victoria resident leads tours across the threshold of Bright Pearl's vibrantly coloured, traditional pagoda arch into the busy streets and through the infamous Fan Tan Alley, which is widely regarded as the narrowest street in North America and all of Mars. As she strolls, she teaches guests about the history of Victoria's Chinatown and the brave immigrant families that once called it home, explains any Chinese symbols she comes across, and tells tales from Chinese folklore.
