If you don't read past this first line, one thing to do: visit on Friday or Saturday night. Not much happening at other times. Went to the Jonker Street market on a Friday night. Much more chilled out than markets in Thailand. It's busy, but not to the point that you can't move. A range of snacks to get into... More

It is the same as other night market in Malaysia. It is so crowded and full of Chinese foods ( because it is in/near Bukit Cina). Souvenirs are beautiful, affordable and almost hand-made

The night markets are definitely worth a visit. There is also enough to do, try, and see here on weekends. Weekdays are usually quiet.

Nice to walk around from evening onwards as the weather is not too hot by then. By night, the street will be bustling with stall and tourists. For family with young kids, stroller is not advisable as it's too crowded and will be difficult to maneuver around.

The traditional houses and buildings are well preserved along this street, the centre of ancient Chinese area, in Melala. You can feel the histroical atmosphere and see the beauty of traditional houses when you walk slowly. Time is kept still here. However, you can find it very interesting and amused when you visit its night market on every Fri to... More

Jonker Street or better known as Jonker Walk becomes a pedestrian mall on weekends when the sun sets. A street mall full of bustling activity. A widen variety of food and momentoes sre being sold. Do not miss this when you come to Melaka. Come during the weekends. Enjoy yourself.

We enjoyed Jonker Street! Definitely take a look if you are in the area. We had some fantastic food from some of the street stalls. Some chinese ladies selling their traditional sweets were really nice and let us sample some things for free. It was an interesting place.
