The shops at jonker street are quite overpriced and not really that spectular. Whereas the stalls at the night market are more value for money. You can find some gems here.

We enjoyed Jonker Street by day, the old buildings, the shops and restaurants. When we returned for the night market, we entered a whole new world...a cacophony of sights and sound. And people! Prepare for crowds, but that's part of the fun. We didn't purchase any trinkets from the many stalls, but we did try the food from street vendors... More

Interesting tourist attraction not to be missed when you are visiting Malacca during the weekends (the stalls are only open from Fri-Sun evening). You can take a stroll along the Jonker street in the evening and there are many stalls that sell souvenir items, local street foods, toys and clothing's at a very reasonable price. The walk way can be... More

You can taste most of the local food just with a walk thru the street.. But is quite inconvenience if u walk with a baby stroller, is very crowded during peak period..

There are plenty of stalls at night to shop and buy some items from. Prices are also reasonable. You can also get street food or drinks (if you have a strong stomach) but it's better to go for proper restaurant that are just behind the stall stores. Some of the restaurant closes really early (before 8pm) so do grab your... More

This street has some nice buildings, has real charm and would be great.... But..... The many stores selling a lot of cheap stuff nobody needs does not to justice to the history of this place. The heerenstraat is already better for that matter. I was disappointed.

We spent an evening just taking a stroll along Jonker Walk watching foreign tourists doing tourist staff. Its an old part of town hence an excellent photo opportunity.
