May be the old Jonker St is great but not this one. There are some local made food and stuff you can buy. But the street is narrow and there are cars travelling at the same time. On a hot day, you will not be able to travel too far with the kids. Go there, take a picture and have... More

In daytime, this street consists a lot of restaurants including the famous chicken riceball and nyonya cuisine, shops selling souvenirs, and others. At night, there will be a nightmarket along the street but limited to weekends only.

Easy to navigate as it is just one long street with shops on both sides. When it gets crowded, it becomes a tad hard to negotiate, but not overly so. Still enjoyable enough It is definitely a place for comfortable shoes, light clothing and sunscreen. i like it that I could just pop in and out of shops with friendly... More
