It should be called "Red street" instead of "Felicidade Street", like the "Red Light district". It has a distinct Chinese aspect and it is nice to stroll around (shops, restaurants...)

Good place to take a pictures. Red all the way. If Senado is more like European style sight, this is Chinese traditional sight. Few restaurants are available so you can find a place to eat, too.

A very scenic and historical part of Macau offering many Portuguese restaurant and quaint shops. This area has been preserved and rightly so. The red sliding doors with pole gates are very colorful as with the past!!
