Jonker Street Night Market, Melaka

We’ve visited Melaka more times than we can count. Why Melaka? It’s closer to our home in Kuala Lumpur. Arguably, everything there is to love about Penang can be found here in Melaka. The views are nicer, and Melaka is also a UNESCO World Heritage City.

The vibes are more or less the same, and the drivers here are certainly a tad bit nicer. The food is great, and there are many cafes to explore, not to mention museums. We love visiting museums, and Melaka has plenty of them.

We’ve been to Jonker Street Night Market many times as well. We didn’t bring our camera on our previous visits, so we decided to bring one this time and take some pictures for this blog post.

This was a week ago at the time of writing. So, we went to the market at about 6 to 7 pm. It wasn’t dark yet. We wanted to arrive early for parking, and luckily, we found one near the Muzium Kastam Diraja Malaysia. We parked our car there and walked to Jonker Street Night Market.

For tourists unfamiliar with Melaka, the Jonker Street Night Market is a must-visit attraction. It takes place every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 6 pm to midnight. Located on Jonker Street, the market comes alive with a cacophony of sights, sounds, and delicious aromas.

Closed to traffic, the street welcomes approximately 400 stalls selling traditional handicrafts, local Nyonya cuisine, and unique gifts and crafts not commonly found in other Southeast Asian night markets.

The market’s delicious and diverse street food is also famous, including coconut ice cream, curried fish balls on skewers, and pineapple tarts. In addition to yummy treats, there’s a big variety of local crafts, souvenirs, clothes, accessories, toys, cute plants, and other cool stuff to discover.

If you’re planning a trip to Melaka, we strongly recommend scheduling your visit to coincide with the Jonker Street Night Market (Google Maps). There are many nearby hotels, and we’re sure you’ll find one that suits your budget.

Thank you for reading. We took lots of pictures, and we’ll upload more of them from time to time on our Instagram. Follow us there and don’t forget to watch our Reels too.
