Yes, it is a pretty street with very interesting architecture, but it is extremely boring during the week when barely anything is open! It was a real struggle to find somewhere open to eat, and most things that were open closed at 5pm. The souvenir shops are nice but it's odd as they are all duplicates of each other (sometimes...

Jonkor street is your typical tourist market. It's worth a wander down once during your trip to Malacca (it has quite a fun atmosphere) but 90% of the merchandise on sale is plastic junk. There are some nice food stalls and some shops selling local crafts, prints etc so these are definitely worth a look but once you've been down... More

In addition, they also sell a number of Perankan snacks such as Chendol, Durian puffs, etc which is a nice dessert to compliment the main course. In addition, there are many small... More

Jonker street is worth a visit during the day for the many interesting little shops. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings there is a night market. There are plenty of food stalls selling local specialities. The atmosphere is very festive. We loved it.

We visited Monday and the street is very central with plenty of souvenir shops selling pretty much the same and some nice antique shops. We found the streets off Jonker street and parallel with it more interesting but at the weekend its probably a different story.

We loved this street - action starts at 6pm. Lots of food and souvenirs for sure, but there are also halls with local people enjoying their weekend with dancing and a stage for karaoke. We had awesome (cheap ) food and three nights of entertainment. Teenage kids didn't tire of this. Highly recommend.
