Snapshot Saturday: Street of Happiness

Rua da Felicidade or Street of Happiness

Deserted, early in the morn. Macau’s ol’ red-light district. Coincidentally has buildings with red shutters. Some scenes in the flick Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom were shot here.

Today we’re leaving SanVa Hotel (a one hundred year old crumbling hostel that sits on this street) for a more swanky one, something my parents deserve. It was fun though letting them experience our usual accommodation when backpacking!

When not backpacking, she teaches her daughter sight words and belly dancing (even if she's not good at it). She's currently eating her way around some hippie town in Australia. She loves talking about herself in the third person.

  1. I suppose those red shutters are for effect. The customer would feel like an emperor with his concubine for the night. It’s more Zhang Yimou than Indy Jones. :)

  2. Hey there! We really had a great time in Macau. Accommodation, food, transpo are a bit pricey though. Hotels can range from P1,000-P7,000 depending on your preference. Food’s about P150-200 a meal. We mostly took the bus so we can save on cabs.

    You can enter the luxurious hotels (The Venetian, Grand Lisboa) and wander around Senado Square for free! Museums ask for minimal admission fee.
