It's a relatively short street with old buildings. A lot of them were engaged in Shark Fin business but a lot of shops were closed on the date I visited.

The houses are painted in red now but it was brown and black when I was a child. I use to find the wooden door and the sliding wooden gate interesting. The sliding wooden gate is a very unique and popular feature of houses in Macau and Guangdong at that time.

When I saw pictures, I thought I should visit this place. Turns out it was nothing much and I was disappointed. There were many shops selling food and bakery. You could walk only five or ten minutes then there was nothing left. Unless you stay in the hotel which is near Rua Da Felicidade like me, I don't recommend you... More

We will go to Rua da Felicidada every time when we go to Macau. There are a lot of nice restaurants nearby. I like to go to 祥記麵家, their shrimp noodle (蝦子麵) and fish skin (魚皮) are my favor. There are a lot of restaurants were selling shark fin soup, but i don't eat shark fin anyway. Walk around this... More

My mum told me grand-pa used to come here when the street was a red light district. My mum followed him once and she remembers women singing and dressing up nicely, with their trendy items such as perfume and make up kits. They used to looked outside from the windows to attract their customers, similar to the facilities in Amsterdam.... More

This is s very small street but it's so original that it's worth seeing. There are some local bars and restaurants. The red windows and doors are so interesting and for those that like taking pictures, here is the place. If you are in Macau, you should come here. But don't expect nothing else than a small street.

There are row of restaurants and crowds just queuing to enter some of them.The food must be good here but unfortunately I did not have the time to stop... More

This street has been artfully renovated, with unity provided from top to bottom by granite pavement and red doors and shutters. A few restaurants are there, but the overall feeling is of walking in a well-preserved and well-behaved Old China. Well, not quite – this Street of Happiness is recorded in numerous early 20th century travelogue as the “where to... More
