Busy but worth going

Interesting for walking along but if you've gone to night markets before then you've seen it all. It's a long street so should be something worth buying or eating.

A must if you're visiting Melaka. Vendors of all sorts from street food, trinkets, clothing, nitrogen ice cream... The stores behind the street vendors are gorgeous and also offer a variety of local products. Many of the store interiors reminded me of hiply decorated stores of Abbot Kinney in Venice and Santa Monica California. I would recommend staying nearish to... More

Pretty much everyone is selling the same stuff and won't be recommended if you are not a foodie for local delights. The street artist in gold is pretty good and obliges for photographs for a small fee. Various trishaws available for the experience and also nearby to Hard Rock Cafe.

I love the markets in Asia and Jonker Street is no exception. Lots of curios. Lots of clothes. Lots of food. Love the colors, the noise, the smells, the energy. Gets pretty crowded.

We wished that we have more than one stomach like the cows whenever we visit Jonker Street. For two pax: Half a chicken with one rice ball follow by a bowl of mee sua with local brewed coffee for breakfast. A full fare of nyonya lunch with the best chendol dessert. Charcoal grilled satay with herbal drinks for tea. Authentic... More

Worth visiting during the day to see the various shops and restaurants. Many good eats to choose from. Then after 6 it becomes a night market and comes alive.

Jonker Street is THE street to visit and it has it all. Plenty of souvenirs to accomodate every taste in the world. Lots of nicknacks and top quality items. Imported and locally made stuff, plenty of shops selling anything from antique to newly painted clothes and jewellery. Street food and lots of restaurants, cafes and a pub or two where... More

We loved Malacca. It is a very clean city with super friendly people. Food plays a main priority and Malaccans are proud of their restaurants and local dishes. Jonker Street shows us why countries should preserve architecture and culture. We loved strolling past the ancient shops and restaurants, temples and mosques. The area is packed full of visual interests and... More

A lot of handcraft shops and nice food options along this street. Pretty full on weekends. It leads you direct to the main attractions (Stadthuis, ...)
