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 closed and the streets were empty, and Rua da Felicidade was simply beautiful.
This was a very pleasant photography experience. We were able to spend considerable time taking photos and enjoying streets to ourselves. We felt this was a much better way to visit compared to the middle of the day when the streets are busy with locals and visitors.
Rua da Felicidade is an interesting street in Macau. While of much lesser interest compared to Macau's more famous locations and attractions nearby in the city centre, it is worth seeking out for those that enjoy photography or want to see something a bit different in Macau. We now think its best to go early before the shops open and the other visitors arrive so you can have the streets to yourself.
