Jonker Street or also known as Jonker Walk, is the Chinatown street of Melaka. It is an old, beautiful heritage street in Malacca City in Malacca (Melaka), Malaysia.
It is a street filled with 17th century historical houses. You can start your journey at either ends of the street. On one end is the Jonker Walk Arch. The other end is at the Tan Kim Seng Bridge. The landmarks are H&M or San Shu Gong.
From Friday to Sunday from 6.00 p.m. until 12 midnight, the street becomes Jonker Street Night Market – a vibrant outdoor hub of food and goods. The street will be closed to vehicles. Hence, it becomes easy to walk and roam the street on foot. It can be crowded and busy with activity.
At night, the street can good for night street photography as the Jonker Walk Arch and the street are lighted up.
To avoid the crowd, go early in the morning and on weekdays. Much better walking around when there are fewer people.
