Jonker Street Shopping
Where to Shop and What to Buy in Jonker Street
It can’t be said enough; Jonker Street’s charm lies in its night market which plays host to a collection of stalls that sell just about everything but the kitchen sink. Kitschy knick-knacks and tasty treats are featured prominently along this thoroughfare while the tables from the various bars, bistros, pubs and restaurants spill out over onto the sidewalk.

Established in 1992 as an art house gallery by Malaccaborn artist Charles Cham, the Orang Utan House is a studio gallery for Charles’ works, but it’s the instantly-recognizable, brightly painted exterior that first catches your eye – it’s a sunshine yellow building with a huge orange utan painted on the outside. Inside there’s a collection of the artist’s contemporary paintings (all for sale) and even reasonably priced, funky and one-of-a-kind T-shirts that are extremely popular souvenirs. There are several outlets throughout Malacca.
