Eating and shopping
What we say:
Now officially known as Jalan Hang Jebat, this is the heart of Melaka's Chinatown and prime grounds for souvenir shopping and sampling local specialties like pineapple tarts and chicken rice balls.
Most of the Chinese shophouses have been converted into antique stores or cafes, but a precious few carry on as bicycle repair shops and tailors.
Though it's easy to get distracted by eating and shopping, don't miss the museums and temples on adjacent streets.
From 18:00-00:00 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Jonker Walk is blocked off to become Melaka's best night market with entertainment and even more eating.
