Great food street. Many different types of stalls. From early evening until late. We thoroughly enjoyed our nightly strolls through the area. Our kids especially enjoyed the different treats on offer. The colourful trickshaws were a favourite of our 5 year old.

If you are in Melaka then its likely that you'll visit Jonker St. Yes as many have commented it is touristy but that is part of its charm. Don't avoid it but visit knowing that you will see a lot of shops and restaurants that rely on tourists. There are still some very unique parts, so take a wonder down and take few photos

Do yourself a favour don't waste your time unless your going for food. The market stalls were lame and selling crap. However there was some decent street food vendors. In short If you're planning to eat it is worth the trip, if you're planning, shoping and haggling don't waste your time..

It's just a street with a lot of Chinese restaurants and shops on it, not really anything too special.

Jonker Street is good by day and good by night, but I just admit I was left a little bit bored by the same things offered on every other stall. Don't get me wrong this place is good fun but I hoped for more from the market, like the markets I've experienced in Bangkok and Chiang Mai.
We went on a Sunday night (and afternoon too) if that makes a difference

Most of the dry goods sold are the typical junk. However, this is the place to go to try new foods !

We went 3 different nights, and ate different each night. Oysters, Clams, Fish, Tacos, stuff I don't even know the name of! :)

Nice street market but overrated and food were over priced and not everything taste that great. I supposed being a tourist area, prices are marked up. OK for experience and some pictures.

Jonker walk is a tourist heavy street that retains the flavour of the city with its traditional shops which houses restaurants , snacks, souvenirs , religious places and etc.

It is very crowded especially on weekend with the night market which is increasingly becoming crowded (which is a good point ) as Melaka slowly tries to get back to pre-pandemic business.

Like all traditional old towns similar to Hoi An, Georgetown, Vientiane, lijiang, Venice, Drubrovnic, they sell similar souvenirs, food and experiences. Good for a couple hour visit if you like busy, crowded traditional architecture and vibes .

By far the most vibrant and fun place when visiting the beautiful city of Malacca.
The area comes even more so alive up as the evening approaches with vendors setting up stalls and a side street that turns into a food heaven.

Haven't been to Jonker walk at night (Friday, Saturday there is night market) for decades and it change a lot. After the pendamic, it resume back to it's liveliness. Lots of food and souvenir shops along the street with reasonable price. The street looks clean and beautiful.

Walking out from jonker walk night market, you will see lots of trishaw with neon light and songs that you can try on to take a ride on it. If you like a walk, you can continue with melaka riverside. It is very beautiful with restaurant and pub along.
