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

We were here during public holiday at the afternoon. It was quiet, not too much store was open. The restaurants were mostly chinese, with several merchandise stores.

Short street. Night market was interesting altho you find many stalls selling the same stuff. Very warm and crowded on the weekend we were there. The good thing is no one hustles you. Too many over-dressed trishaws clogging the entrance and exits to Jonker Road.

Plenty souvenir, local food and entertainment that you can find in this street. It can be very crowded during weekend or holidays.

Great market, gets really busy, some nice little bars but a little expensive in some. Get some cheap sunglasses but they don't like to be knocked down in price a lot.
