Rua da Felicidade

  Rua da Felicidade is a very well-known old street in the southwest of the Macao Peninsula. Its name, meaning "the street of joy", speaks to its origins as a place of prostitution, gambling, opium and drinking. One half of Rua da Felicidade is a steep slope, where prostitutes and their clients used to gather. Entering the street from its northwest end, there is a more level section, where opium houses, gambling stalls and drinking houses were set up before opium was banned in Macao.
