The place is absolutely fun, great food and different things you can find. But you can't get slippers only flippers from here, walking through the city is kinda tiring plus under the sun. The food it's pricy but it's worth it.

This place always have something new to offer. It's never the same each time you visit it. I still make those weekend trips to Melaka for business just so I could visit the place. Keep up the great work dear vendors of jonker street.

No visit to Melaka is complete without visting Jonker Street. It is a bustling and happening place, especially during public holidays and long weekends. You can spend time browsing through the various souvenir shops and other shops selling clothes and antiques. Of course, many things available here are not necessarily made here. There is lots to eat and drink, and... More

The most touristical place in Melaka even though it's not a pedestrian street (sadly). You can find many interesting things to buy as gifts or souvenirs at a decent price. Close to the river and most hotels it is also a good place to eat or stop for a drink at any time of the day.

We spent a long time there, almost all day. Walking around, visiting all attractions. Shops, cafes and restaurants. Weather was great until it started raining heavily. We took the chance to make reflexology. Was great. Visited harmony street where there is a moral and Indian temple and Chinese temple

The road between the 2 rows of shop houses will be close on the weekend for night market, best is to go after 6pm as all vendors will start to come in to setup the stalls.

If you are visiting Malacca, a visit to Jonker Street has to be on your list. At the end of it all, you would be able to declare, "Been there, done that." This is a much hyped area and there is not much for a seasoned traveler to go 'wow!' The street is narrow, the footpaths grossly overcrowded and you... More

Jonker walk is one of the must dos in Malacca. Famous for its antique shops and restaurants and weekend night market when the whole street is closed to traffic
