The street gives out different vibes during the day and night. In the day, it was just great to walk around and explore the shops. Can shop for souvenirs and little trinkets, and of course, experience their delicious food such as chendol & laksa. In the night, the street is closed to traffic and it transforms into lines of stalls... More

Other reviewers had said that this street was too touristy and unappealing. It is no doubt very touristy, but there were some interesting places to poke around in (although don't expect to find any genuine bargains). Other reviewers said that there were no eateries that 'spilled out onto the street', which I must say is not true. There were numerous... More

During the day the street is like a motorway with an endless line of cars slowly crawling along. It would be nice if the street was pedestrianised as it is at night. Lots of shops selling different tourist tat and cafés. I found the side streets more interesting although still busy with cars.

You must visit Jonker street twice, once in the early afternoon then a evening visit to cover the whole street of shops. Day and night is different. For the night market, I will suggest to reach Jonker street by 6pm so that you can enjoy the stalls as around 7.30pm, the whole place is very crowded.

Drive along this walk at 12:30am, Saturday night. The stalls are mostly closed and saw a few peoples around. I think they are the hawkers who took rest after packing up their goods. Don't go here at this time, u'll see nothing.

The walk is very busy and crowded. In the evenings it can get a bit hectic and theres a lot of pushing. However there are lots of stalls selling great crafts and souvenirs and lots selling snacks, ice cream and delicious coconut shakes! Worth seeing one evening!

A good place for visiting but it was so hot must go there in right timing. Generally is good, must go with local friend here because they are the one who know which shop sell the things with a good price and which are not.

So many little shops to explore and many cafes where you can eat or just stop for a cool drink. Of especial interest to me was the House of Masks which I found fascinating. The friendly staff were happy to answer questions and explain the stories behind the different masks.
