My partner and I visited Jonker Street during our 3 day stay in Melaka over the Hari Raya Puasa weekend (17 - 19 July 2015). The street was unlike the tourist shopping belt I'd been more accustomed to; think Orchard Road. The streets were narrow and pedestrians and cars share the narrow way. The thing that struck me was the... More

I am from KL and I must say that this place made me forget about the uptown and downtown night market in KL.. Crowded with people and a very friendly street vendors.. You can bargain the price.. The price is very reasonable for anything that you purchase here.. A must go place..

A lively street bustling with activities day and night. I prefer to go in the day though. Good place to try local snacks and tidbits. If you are keen on trying tasty local cuisines, I would recommend looking outside Jonker.

I had been to this street 7-8 years ago. So dissappointing to see it has totally changed. Everything changed in order to make it more touristic. Local arts replaced with stuff imported from china, pubs playing only western music, 3-wheeled bikes with hello kitty design.. Many artificial things to Attract Chinese people. Once again, when a place is declared as... More

Jonker Street was fantastic, with lots of shops to choose from, many places to eat, and what seemed like endless antique shops. Great for those who are looking for antiques. Souvenirs available too. Unfortunately we missed the markets there, however there was still a lot to see.

If you like street food and street shopping this is the place for nightlife in Malacca. Large crowds on weekends when it's open, although Sunday was better as many tourists left earlier in the day. Merchants selling all sorts of items and many food vendors. We has some excellent seafood. Just look around for items that catch your eye. Good... More

Only open on Fr-Sun... even if not buying anything it is worth a stroll just to soak in the ambiance. A strange array of merchandise sold which is not necessarily heritage or retro in nature. Go if only for the atmosphere.
