The night market was incredibly vibrant and offered an assortment of things to buy! Prices were good, and we got customized keychains for our friends. It was not that expensive, with name engravings and all. At the end of the market, after a bit of a walk, is the river cruise. I will be writing a review for that too.... More

Jonker street is nice during the day, but at night the street is closed to vehicles and it becomes a night market deluxe! Food and trinkets and art are all for sale. Not good if you avoid crowds- it's packed with people.

We arrived in Melaka on Sunday and walked to Jonker Street, there was a weekend street market which was very entertaining, there was lots of great looking street eats, karaoke singers, people selling local crafts.It was noisy but fun, when we returned to Jonker street on Monday it looked totally different.

You have to try durian fruit here. Very thick yummy and sweet. I found nowhere like this. In the evening and nite this place more interesting like a festive a long this street. You can buy many variant food and there is a shop which sell things you can bring home. Something unique from Melaka as souvenirs.

Do plan holiday between Fri-Sun if u wanna catch the night market. Although is crowd are crazy but the locals/vendors are always friendly to everyone. That's the spirit for boosting Malaysia Tourism.

It is very commercial, not very cultural except the buildings. Please plan your trip on Friday & Saturday or public holiday eve, other than that, a lot of shops along Jonker Streer are closed, especially at night.
