Good Food and restaurant. Crowded. Checkout side lanes for authentic restaurants and drinks. If it rains, it will spoil the night.

Previously i came on a weekday. This time i realised what a mistake it was. This place is really lovely at weekends' nights compared to other times.

Love looking at the architecture of these old shop house which have been preserved. The shops range from Asian antiques and great Kopitiam (coffee houses) to touristy souvenirs. Wander down and see temples next to mosques and experience the splendour if old Malaysia. A must do if visiting Melaka.

This is a Guinness title holder activity in the city where business, dry market, leisure and tourism are brought to the Jonker Street. My walk tour commenced at the point where Hard Rock Café is located and I found Jonker Street a flea market where almost everything was displayed for sale, that is, from utility tools to personal apparels, from...

Very nice to take a walk down this street and enjoy the cafes and shops. May want to avoid Saturday afternoons and holidays. Also nights on weekends can be very busy but fun. Some restaurants have singing at night. On weekend nights you can sit outside and eat food from street vendors.

I visited this street a couple of years ago and I think nothing has changed much since then. It's one of the preserved heritage sites in Melaka, Malaysia and it's a street filled with the "Peranakan" or Chinese-Malay-mixed culture. There are lots of authentic Chinese restaurants complete with the old oriental-style settings. A lot of tasty and affordable street foods... More
