Walking here is wonderful. We can see so many old building which was built while Portuguese ruled. So the architecture was still Portuguese style. Along on this place was so many foods which you wanna try everything (haha...). And for the shopaholic, there are so many clothes branded outlet and unbranded you may see. You can buy a Macau souvenir... More

This street used to be the red light district of Macao. It is only a 5-10 minute off the St. Paul's ruins. As the guide says, it's also a five minute walk off the famous Senado Square area. If you do decide to walk here, walk opposite the Lisboa hotel, go the other way. Here, you find the remains of... More

This is not a part of the world heritage monuments of Macao, but I found this very interesting. It's in tact, and very much alive as a community. Notice the red doors and windows on the rows of houses on either side of the street. You'll realize that each house has three types of doors for different uses - ask... More

Also known as 福隆新街, this place is located very near to Ruins of St Paul's and Senado Square. if you are looking for good food, this is a place one should include in the travel plan, especially after visiting Ruins of St Paul's and Senado Square. Cheung Kei Noodles House (祥記) and Porridge(三元) are just a few of the choices.... More

We came to Felicidade in our Taiwan trip on a sunny day and the town with small and neat streets covered us from the sunlight. The doors and windows of the houses are all painted in red though the walls and roofs can be old, doors and windows are new reddish. There are many shops and small restaurants with cheap... More

Rua da Felicidade is just a short narrow street with old houses. We came here just for Cheung Kei Noodles, a popular small typical chinese shop for its popular shrimp roes noodles.

We made a return trip to Rua da Felicidade as we wanted to see what it looked like with all the red shutters and doors closed instead of being busy with locals, visitors and open shops. So we hit the streets early, at least by Macau standards, arriving around 8.30am on Monday morning during the CNY holiday. All shops were... More

This famous old street is tucked away from the main drag, yet not difficult to find at all. If you can find Senado Square (you will!), this street is just a one to two minute walk from Avenida De Almeida Ribeiro. This street is called "Fook Lung Sun Gaai" in Chinese, which will help you to find if you ask... More
