Jonker street is a very attractive place in Melaka and a popular area of the historic city to visit.  The street is more happening on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at night but is not quite busy throughout the day as well since Melaka was awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO in 2008.  Now the streets are lined with souvenir shops in addition to the traditional restaurants that have staked claim here for decades.  Foods and drinks found here that are worth trying include; Hai Nan coffee, cendol, laksa, and so on are recommended.

He was responding to Gelang Patah MP and DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang's claim that the closure of Jonker Street night market was punishment of voters who did not vote for Barisan Nasional
