Crazy Bazaars and crowded street!

The place was sprawling with people/shoppers and hawker-like stalls on both sides of the street. Best to check this place out after 11.00 pm, when the congestion has subsided and... read more

The place was sprawling with people/shoppers and hawker-like stalls on both sides of the street. Best to check this place out after 11.00 pm, when the congestion has subsided and the prices are reduced. A variety of food/cuisine is available here for your taste buds. Good entertainment/bars along one stretch of the street. A real adventure and exploration in store... More

We were there during the Chines New Year. Prices went up but the athmosphere was fantastic. Many restaurants, Night market during the week-end and dances and singing on a podium in the street. Beautiful houses and museums.

Get the street food or just walk into any of the less crowded stores. Was happy to go to one which has the best curry noddles & durian chendol (coconut milk desert) - a must try. They need to improve on public toilet facilities. Too crowded and vehicle traffic makes it worse.

Located in the middle of malacca, jonker street is very different during the day and at night. During the day, walk along Jonker Street and the adjoining Heren Street to browse at the many antique shops which carry artifacts from the city's rich history. If you are thinking of buying anything, be prepared to bargain and if you are prepared... More

If you like to shop and eat expensive (for a backpacker) this is the place in Malakka. For us it was too many people and too expensive and too set up only for tourism. Beautiful but no charm

Jonker street is filled with surprise, from various souvenir shops, eatery to fashion. A lot of guest houses are located in here. Most importantly, during the weekend it will be transformed to a street filled with night market and there will be people singing on the stage as well. Price overall are reasonable and cheap, there are just too many... More

Jonker Street itself is very fake. The area is filled with tourists and most shops are tourist oriented. However, most tourist towns have at least 1-2 streets like this. There are a few good restaurants and it is a good place to grab souvenirs as well. Surrounding streets are worth a walk. Nice architecture in area.
