Jonker st Walk Night Markets in China Town Mar 03, 2013
Jalan Hang Jebat, or Jonker Walk is it commonly known, is a street in historical Chinatown of Melaka starting just across the river from the Dutch Square. Jonker Walk is flanked on both sides of the road with heritage houses dating back up to the 17th century. At that time, rich Baba Nonyas (also known as Perankans, descendents of 15th - 16th century Chinese immigrants marrying local Malay women) lived and did their business here.

Today, the street houses many shops selling antiques, textiles, handicrafts and souvenirs (similar to what you can find at Central Market in Kuala Lumpur). On the weekends, starting Friday night at 6pm, the road is closed off for traffic and turns in a very crowded night market. The famous Chicken Rice Ball dish can also be found here, just opposite the start of Jonker Walk near the bridge.

Opening Hours Jonker Walk Night Market:

Friday, 6-10pm

Saturday & Sunday, 11am-10pm

I think the night markets are just weekend nights but not definately sure. They run 7.30pm to 10.30pm. Loads of great stalls, good for shopping. Also saw some incredible breakdancers there which was well worth watching.

Had some chicken rice which seems to be a very popular dish! I would describe but I think the name says it all, does exactly what it says on the tin!
