Jonker Street, Malacca
Tuesday 24th July 2018
Malacca is widely known for its harmonious blend of cultures as well as numerous historical sites, and Jonker Street (the main street of Chinatown) is the perfect place to see everything merge together. This central hub of activity also serves as a haven for antique collectors, bargain hunters, and vintage fashion enthusiasts. Whilst the main attraction of Jonker Street is its night market held every Friday and Saturday, we have found several well-preserved landmarks, some dating back to the 18th century, nestled amongst the street’s more modern establishments. The diversity of Jonker Street’s traditional and urban attractions is a testament of Malaysia’s colourful history and rich multicultural society.
