It's just a normal shopping street in China town with a couple of temples and a mosque. But on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings there is a night market full of food hawkers, trinkets and loads of atmosphere. Well worth the effort to go, I think it sets up about 6pm.

Took my family for a walk during the afternoon at Jonker. Many shops selling Malacca memorabilia. Do some window shopping before purchasing, a word of advise .......... bargain. Great food throughout the street e.g chicken rice ball, chendol, freshly pineapple pastries as well as durian puff.

Better came here on weekend for the night market so you can choose wider selection. But if you come on afternoon, make sure you don't miss es cendol nyonya to refresh your day!

Great place to buy street food that is clean. Plenty of shops to buy authentic Malaysian snacks, especially those from Ipoh.

Architecturally interesting, but many of the shops selling quick snacks and tourist tat, including the night market. One has to search carefully to find the more interesting shops. Most dining places close before 7pm on weekdays.

Sadly I wasn't here at the weekend so missed the stalls and markets but it was still pretty to see the whole street. Had laksa at 88 jonker which was amazing. I highly recommend.

We had heard that the street was renowned for it's competitively priced antiques but that must have been in the dim and distant past. Now it is basically a street full of shops selling souvenirs and cheap handicrafts - all of which were basically rubbish. OK, there is the odd bar and cafe scattered amongst the shops and we did...

Well as the name implies its a Unesco World Heritage but nothing much to see. 2 days and 1 night tour is enough to checkout the place then move on. Maybe for just a bit of food trip and sight seeing
