This is our first time to Malacca and of course we have to hit Jonker Street. We went on a Sunday night so we expected the street to be crowded which it was. We parked the car at the Jonker St carpark. As you walk...More

Nothing great. Weather was very hot and there are no safe pedestrian walkways, no shelters, no trees

Lots of very interesting shops from Antiques to Local Favourites. During the night, makeshifts stalls occupied the roads and it’s another different Jonker Street. A place not to miss in Melaka. Serves one of the best Chendol, Ondeh Ondeh and Chicken Rice Ball

Cute and colourful shops selling stuff that is uniquely theirs. We had to try the chicken rice stall. Long queue though. Unlike Singapore's, no soup as that would have taken away the richness of the meat.

It's a nice street, lots of shops. The night market was a bit of a let down. Not authentic Malay. Lots of Korean bbq and toys.

We walked the length of Jonker Street. Unfortunately it was a hot day. There were shops selling crafts, beaded sandals, foods, and there were also temples. We had a good chinese lunch in one the open restaurants.

Jonker Street is different during the day and nite. When walking along this street during the day, u can feel the sense of nostalgic. Shops are old but wood carving from years before make up for it. Most shops don't open during the day if...More

Baba and Nyonya is well known among the Chinese Peranakan. I like Laksa Baba and Nyonya. Its tasty and delicious for the foreigner to try it as typical Malacca Food.

Came to Jonker night market to experience what others have been raving about. After braving the crowds, was a little disappointed and there was not a single item there that I wanted to buy. Walk through the throngs of people only to come out empty...More

Either you visit over the weekend; enjoy the night market chaos and hordes of people or come during the day and deal with the HORDES of tourists. Either way; Jonker Walk is a must visit; heritage buildings, brightly lit tuk-tuks and endless souvenir shops!

I've hear so much about the Jonker Street of Melaka for years. But it was a big disappointment during my first visit as I found it too touristy, expensive, too crowded and food are generally not authentic.

Hi, I also didn't travel there on a ship but Malacca is not that big. I walked the city in a day. I remember the river where some boats were, so if the harbour is there as well, it's not far. :)

Perhaps certain days. There are quite a number of Chinese vendor who celebrate Chinese New Year so perhaps the first days of that period they may not open stalls.
