Rua da Felicidade, Macau

The Rua da Felicidade is one of the most charming urban streets in the world, and offers a wonderful window into the scandalous history of old Macau.
For centuries it was the pleasure-quarters of a notoriously decadent colony, filled with opium dens and brothels, lending a certain piquancy to its name, "The Street of Happiness."
These days, of course, it is home to moderately-priced hotels (a rarity in Macau) and rather upmarket restaurants. The whole street has been beautifully renovated and preserved, and is a must-see for any visitor to Macau.
