5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

Find the time to try the Chicken Rice at the corner of Jonker Street. Walk through each open shops to explore antiques otherwise lost in time.

“Go Friday/Saturday night for the night market”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

Jonker street only comes alive in the afternoon/ night. The night market on weekends is on until midnight, which we walked through eating delicious street food for dinner. A must do in Melaka.

“nice to walk around and find good items to buy and eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

Make time to visit the "Jonker Gallery" stores, they have really nice and eclectic items and clothing for sale. There's also a locally owned hand-made chocolatier where you can also make your own sweets, They also have sugar free chocolates that taste great. Jonker street shops closes at 6pm on weekdays but stay open until late on weekends.

“street market in the mist of old buildings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

Jonker street was great wandering along looking at street stalls and checking out the really old buildings, you could buy hot food and they even had someone selling fairy floss. We stopped at one of bars with outdoor seating and had a cold drink, as it was very hot walking around the market. l got a mobile cover for my phone very cheap and they had lots of stalls with some thing for everyone.
