The Jonker Street is the main street of the old Town Center. There are plenty restaurants, souvenir stores, tourist spots, and budgets hotel. It is a 'must see' place in Melaka.

The walk is super crowded. It is an experience in itself specifically if you come from less crowded country. For an Indian like me it was nothing new. At times walking became too tough as it was so crowded. There are not many good eating or drinking place, but there are some. Things were super expensive for given quality. Though... More

I love this street, both day time and night time. Great food places/shops all around. Night time trip is fascinating along the street - picking small eats as we walk through the night market

Akin more to Europe than Asia this series of shops & alleyways is reminiscent of European cities & towns. Hardly surprising given the town's European heritage. While bustling during the day this area comes alive with stalls & market sellers in the evenings. Well worth a look.

The centre of tourism, Jonker St. and its surrounding side streets are musts for first time visitors. Going around sunset has the advantage of watching the street transform from day to night. Lots of cheap junk to buy in an endless stream of street stalls, but some gems can be found in small independent shop houses.

One of the tourist attractions. If you come to Malacca, don't miss out on this walk. Full of handcraft items and food. Prepare to walk with a hat on your head if you plan to walk during day time. Beware of the cars along the narrow streets.

Don’t understand would the authority would allow a night bazaar in the heritage zone? Especially when bazaar itself is not part of the heritage. Nothing unique, it is the same all around Southeast Asia.

Smacked right in the center of town, Jonker street will bring you back to the old dutch settlements circa 1950-1960. Fridays to Sundays, the local council closes the street for stalls to be set up. Get sweaty as it can be a squash and a squeeze as you browse through for souveniers, and "antiques" to bring home. If you are... More

I always love to stroll around a Chinatown. So far, my favorite is still San Francisco's. However, Jonker Street is worth it too. I visited in afternoon, had lunch in one of coffee shops (they served delicious noodle!), and did photo-hunting. There are a lot of unique shops, cafes, and restaurants in Jonker. Don't forget to bring your camera because... More
