Jonker Street is basically like a pasar malam. Nothing much that is new to the locals. However, it is a good way to spend the evening strolling down the street if you don't mind the crowd. You can get souvenirs and buy local biscuits or goodies here without running around Malacca. Be sure to compare the prices as it can... More

There is a dessert... More

Dirty, tired looking and dangerous for pedestrians. Very little of interest. Along with the whole of Malacca, some money needs to be spent by the town on this tourist attraction to retain tourist interest.

Crazy crowded with lots of shops, finger food, local kopitiam etc. You can find most of Melacca famous food around here, Laksa, Satey, chicken rice all, cendol etc, but we had a hard time trying to find Satey Celup. Meanwhile you will also find lots of souvinier shop, but business only starts after 10am and night market is only on... More

Very crowded , most shops are selling identical stuffs , but was fun just to soak in the atmosphere. A rickshaw ride back to the hotel to complete the trip . My kids chose a hello kitty rickshaw for their ride back :)
