A Short Walk in Jonker Street

Jonker Street, the center street of Chinatown in Melaka, was once famous for its antique shops but over the years it has turned to clothing and crafts outlets as well as restaurants. The best time to be at Jonker Street is on Friday and Saturday nights where there is a  night market that sells everything from tasty treats to cheap keepsakes. You would see traders along the street who put up stalls to sell their products. Some of the locals convert their houses to food stalls where you can get a glimpse of their unique architectural designs.
