When I recently visited Jonker Street I got remembered my young times. The experience of going to night market revived in my mind. Nevertheless, the options available in the night market was different than any other night market you may have visited. A lot of choices to look for however, please carefully check on the prices before buying.

We had a walk through this street in the morning around 9 am. Most of the temples and shops and restaurants were close. At the noon we came back again. It was horrible warm.and humid weather, traffic jam, smelly because of foods and hard to walk because of a lot of parked cars and motorcycles. It is not special attraction.... More

A happening Night Market that worth visiting once. The night market occupies the whole street, which is quite long. But the stalls are just replicating each other. So basically you can just walk half of it and know what are the rest selling behind. Food wise also replicating one another. But there are quite a few local delights that you... More

only opens on Fridays and Weekend. quite a number of bakeries selling pineapple tarts n kuehs. many stalls along both sides of the closed roads selling toys, clothes and food not advisable to use kids strollers as it's difficult to move around.

this is almost the only place where you can hang around all day in Melaka. but unfortunately there's nothing much either in the day or night time other than the shops and the restaurants. at night they set up a night market there but still just the same as those shops in the day time. pretty boring though.

Jonker street becomes a night market on weekends. It is pale and smaller scaled compared to other night markets in KL, BKK, Taiwan etc. At Jonker street I didn’t manage to buy any thing such as clothing or souvenirs. There were mainly kids toys and as adults, I found it a tad boring. All we did was to eat a... More

Jonker walk is a huge place of shophouses. Beautiful surroundings for picture taking. Ideal plc for pre/post wedding photoshoot. Food: Abundance of local food at every corner. You can even find hard rock cafe at one of the streets. Price was relatively cheap. Souvenirs: Lots of cute little fidge magnets, key chains and others around the main street. Can be... More

I've been there twice since this is my hometown. the market is open nights of the weekend with a lot of stalls selling unique and traditional food, it is quite a long and tiring walk with crowds. I'm not suggesting to bring kids, even toddlers. putting your infant in a stroller and walking around is such a bad idea..you still... More

In our first day in Melaka we decided to go to the famous Jonker Street Night Market. At our delight, we are satisfied with what we saw. There are a lot of side walk vendors selling misc. items, tea, coffee, food, and drinks. I was really happy to buy diff kinds of tea! since I can't find one here in... More
