The centre of tourism, Jonker St. and its surrounding side streets are musts for first time visitors. Going around sunset has the advantage of watching the street transform from day to night. Lots of cheap junk to buy in an endless stream of street stalls, but some gems can be found in small independent shop houses.

One of the tourist attractions. If you come to Malacca, don't miss out on this walk. Full of handcraft items and food. Prepare to walk with a hat on your head if you plan to walk during day time. Beware of the cars along the narrow streets.

Don’t understand would the authority would allow a night bazaar in the heritage zone? Especially when bazaar itself is not part of the heritage. Nothing unique, it is the same all around Southeast Asia.

Smacked right in the center of town, Jonker street will bring you back to the old dutch settlements circa 1950-1960. Fridays to Sundays, the local council closes the street for stalls to be set up. Get sweaty as it can be a squash and a squeeze as you browse through for souveniers, and "antiques" to bring home. If you are... More

I always love to stroll around a Chinatown. So far, my favorite is still San Francisco's. However, Jonker Street is worth it too. I visited in afternoon, had lunch in one of coffee shops (they served delicious noodle!), and did photo-hunting. There are a lot of unique shops, cafes, and restaurants in Jonker. Don't forget to bring your camera because... More

There are some hidden treasures among the same old tourist traps. I loved browsing the antique shops! Some of the air conditioned shopping centres were better value (for tourist based trinkets /clothes etc)
