This is one of the oldest and most central streets in Melaka, which hosts an eclectic collection of souvenir shops, flea market style stalls on the weekend, private museums, some abandoned (and robbed) properties, some restored properties made up to Western specifications, restaurants featuring Nyonya food, antique shops. It is clearly an eclectic effort and the absence of centralised planning... More

It was too crowded for me. It could be that it was during the long weekend. The heat and the crowd didn't help much. If you enjoy purchasing from the various peddler very similar to a marketplace, then this could be your thing.

Friday and Saturday nights have the street markets. Apart from the show given by Master HO Eng Hui, the main thing to recommend it is the food. Sitting out in the open air at a little stall or walking along grazing from the various stops along the route. By day, the Jonker Street area serves basically as a tourist trap.

It's the unesco part of the city. A mixing pot of history, culture, modern art, food and shopping. Food wise: Don't miss out on Baboon's burger, Baba Nyoya Cendol, Mod's cafe, rice noodle opposite Orang Utan gallery, chicken rice ball at the corner with the long queue...

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, this narrow street in old Melaka is closed to motor traffic and transformed into a street market. Most of the stuff sold is good for souvenirs, though you might be lucky enough to find some small antique that you like. For those who aren't into shopping, there are enough cafes, bars and little restaurants... More
