  • Malacca is widely known for its harmonious blend of cultures as well as numerous historical sites, and Jonker Street (the main street of Chinatown) is the perfect place to see everything merge togethe...  more »
  • I would definitely stay here again. I don't know why I spent 5 nights, but the street itself is not very good, but there are a lot of good restaurants.

  • It was fun to walk around and look/buy the interesting products the vendors had to offer. It was a fun observation to see how the vendors came in and setup their store fronts. The food from the street vendors was delicious and affordable. Some vendors did have quite impressive performances in selling their goods like the first stall at the start of the street selling coconuts. It's an interesting and fun experience to walk along the street.
  • The varied choice of local food is simply astonishing. Downside is, it's so crowded you have to queue to get a seat, to order your food. It's a night market for tourists, very crammed while walking through the street. You find the usual t-shirts, local ornaments, and on that Saturday, there was a live opera performance. A very lively festive atmosphere.
