Definitely one of the streets you want to walk down, ducking into shop and temples. Very colourful shopfronts. Pleasant, well-maintained garden with statuary, trees and flowers.

While walking around the town stumbled upon the market in Jonker street. This was a market that included food stalls and many other stalls. Not the markets you find at home but full of lovely hustle and bustle.

Go on weekend around 7pm before peak hours (8 - 10pm). Just walk and enjoy shopping rare and unique stuff and enjoy the local delights such as Chendol (Ice Coconut Milk desert) & Rojak Buah (Mix of fruits and spicy soy sauce. Trust us, it's a Must go place when you visit Melaka!

Nice keeping of the old Chinese style architecture, in places some of the shops are a bit "tacky". Many food stalls, restaurants, antique shops, clothing stores. best time to visit is weekend evenings when the street is closed to cars, pedestrians only.

Go in the evening when it is not too hot. When you are here, you should try the durian cendol, durian puffs and the chicken rice. Buy some dodol too! The dodol is exceptional.

Well, only visit here if you have nothing better to do. Definitely for tourist only. Not much different from typical pasar malam... You can buy dinner or dessert here. But the price will not be attractive. You can experience the trishaw from here, but again, beware of the price :(
