The Guinness Book of World Records lists this landmark as the world's narrowest building. The edifice is a mere a meter and half wide, while its upper floor has less than two meters in available space with bay windows. The structure is named after a group of Chinese traders. The city decided to widen the street to allow for increasing traffic, thus reducing the size of their land. Undaunted, the men pushed through with their plans and erected a building.
