Prices have raised and comparable to major city sites. Venture in for experience of the place but get your pastries outside of the jonker area will yield a greater discount.

We went at night, the street was alive with people, trinket stalls, restaurants and snack bars. We had a tasty dinner and enjoyed the atmosphere.

Spnding a few hours shopping on Jonker street is heaps more fun than stepping into a run-of-the-mil shopping mall. Jonker street is populatd with Malaysian shop houses (great for photography) of tourist souvenir shops, art galleries, pastry shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. There is even a hello kitty hotel!

Jonker street is disappointing without the market stalls - we arrived when it was very quiet and nearly turned back to KL. Make sure you visit on a Friday or Saturday to make the most of it and be sure to venture down the side streets to find the food stalls.

Maybe Im a little conflicted since I rate all categories 3 stars except for the overall experience - 4 stars. To be honest the Jonker street has not many stores for shoppers or interesting places for visitors, but walking around these antique houses along quiet streets is like a peaceful throwback experience that I cannot get everyday.

The street is brimming with activity, providing interesting insights into life in Malacca past and present. The houses and shops speak volumes of the international connections and history of the area. So long as you enjoy hustle and bustle and are interested in other cultures this is a place not to miss in Malacca.

Great place to come here no matter what religion and what country you from. Here we can get lot of souvenir and nice food here. It is quite crowded during at night walk. Even i was a Malaccan, I always come here during weekend to have a walk and enjoy the food here, special is chicken rice ball, nyonya food,... More
