This place is good for food and shopping. Night market only weekends. Worth to visit. Should try the chendol at Jonker 88.

Went during the day and walked the length of Jonker St. Mainly stalls and shops with souvenirs and food/drinks. Watch the cars as they don't get out of your way! Also went to the night market on Sunday night which was interesting. The hawker stalls had nice food, we liked the fried vege cake. Worth going to.

Jongker is where you can find food and all the fun. To walk is the best way to explore the place. More fun if you visit this place in the evening coz usually lampions and lights will merry the place Try the traditional food like fish ball soup and air matakucing. Interesting!

There is tonnes to look at here, and if you like buying souvenirs, it's pretty much the place to be. There's also mad amounts to eat and an ickle China Town. I'd say definitely swing by if you're in Malacca, don't worry if you don't give it much time though.

Good place to go to taste some of the best street food in Melacca. Pineapple tarts, Laska and the Chendol are the must tries. Best is to visit during evenings

I've always enjoyed coming here as the presence of the Malacca Chinese culture makes it interesting. You may have to park far during peak hours. The walk can be a bit long and it can get a bit crowded and stuffy but no worries, you can make a stop every now and then to enjoy "flower pot ice cream", drinks... More

Jonker Street is the most famous street in Melacca. The night market on the weekends are the highlight. You can find anything under the sun from food, drinks, clothes, toys, accessories and souvenirs. The next street to it has a whole row of seafood stalls you can eat from. It is a little touristy for me, however that is the... More

At the end of the day, Jonker Street is just that a street with many shops selling touristy curios and food stalls which pop up in the night. I thought Melaka overall was a complete waste of time with hardly anything worth the visit.
