Melaka during the week

Hi

We'll be stying in Melaka on a Monday and Tuesday night....I realise the Jonker's Walk market is only on at weekends which is a shame! What can we do in the evenings (family with kids under 13)? What time do the shops close? Any market stalls around late afternoon /evenings? Thanks

Hi,

Monday and Tuesday unfortunately are the quietest days of the week, especially Tuesday where some musuems and restaurants are close as the rest day. Jonker Walk will still have some stalls on the walkway but you can also check out Heritage bazaar in Dataran Phalawan mall selling the usual tourist souvenir and local products.

Best thing to do in the evening is the 45 mins river boat cruise between 7- 7.15 pm where the sun sets and camera still can capture beautifully.

The 7 mins revolving Taming Sari tower is also best taken at dusk around 7.15pm as you get to see the sunset at sea on one side and the brick roof top and glowing red light of china town on the other side.

There are some children playground and undersea world in Dataran Pahlawan's second and third floor. So when it gets too hot outside, Dataran Pahlawan mall which is next to the A Famosa gate is best place to have some air con and browsing around.

Thanks Alex. Shame we'll be missing the busy market but in a way I suppose it'll be nice to explore Melaka when it's a bit quieter. I'll check out the mall you've suggested and the tower.

What are you favourite restaurants there?
