Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, looks like an English city, as its name suggests. Double-decker buses, Victorian architecture, and a number of tea rooms provide the decoration. The mild climate provides gorgeous flowers, as you can see in the Butchards gardens. The Cragdarroch Castle, a magnificent 19th century castle, is amongst the historic sites. The Royal British Columbia Museum tells the history of the province and country in detail, through the reconstruction of villages, buildings, and typical forests. The Chinese district, typical and joyful, is a complete change of scene.
