Visit Malaysia By
State Or City
Have you ever dreamed of discovering treasure? Well, here in Malacca is a street that is famed for its antique and curio shops that always display many treasures from yesteryear.
Indeed Jonker Street shopping is not all about antiques and curiosity shops as interspersed between these are a number of cafes serving some excellent local cuisine and entertainment.
But it is the setting for the Jonker Walk Night Market that gets me every time I visit Malacca, I love to wander aimlessly from stall to stall and sample some of the delightful street cuisine available before settling down outside one of the atmospheric cafes to drink Teh Terik, ahhh bliss!
This charming night time bazaar is popular with the locals and tourists alike and the price on most goods can usually be negotiated.
This atmospheric street is definitely worth visiting even if you have no interest in antiques as just browsing the shops reveals some unique items rarely seen even in most SE Asian cities.
