Its really packed during the weekend. Most of the items sold there came from China. But its relatively a good experience to explore the street yourself.

It is very busy in the day time, and people from all over Malaysia will come here for their holiday too. People are polite, and you can see a lot of local food restaurants and vendors. The downside there is the cars. Way too many cars on the road, although they drive in courtesy, you still feel difficult to walk... More

Imposible to walk since there is no pavement and ditches are a hazard you're forced to walk on the road with cars. It's full of tourists. I would head straight for the temple and mosque which are not on the main street. If you don't like busy places don't bother with this street you'll only miss tourist shops with bad... More

This is a must - visit street. Full of pleasant chaos, sights and sounds. It really comes alive at night. The moment you enter the street the glorious smell of fried food hits you in the face. Tease your tastebuds with the local food and delicacies- grilled cuttlefish on stick, chendol, coconut shake...the list goes on!

Variety of local products. If you wish to buy anything compare prices and bargains for a good deal. The vendors usually charged higher price and hope that tourists will buy without bargain.

You will find a lot of souvenir shops and food store along Jonker Street. It's the main street where you will find souvenirs to buy home and local food to taste. At night, this street will turn to be a night market where more food and things to taste and buy. I like the vibrant scene of the street, but... More

Jostle with the crowd. Get your favorite Chendol with lots of Gula Malaka from No.86 (although I felt the standard has dropped over the years). The chicken rice balls are not to be missed and can be found along numerous shops! Try out the 'plant' Ice cream that is gaining popularity. The traditional Pineapple tartsas well as Hard Rock Cafe... More
