Melaka has a long and rich history as a one time independent Sultanate, a colony for both the Dutch and the English, a commercial centre, and home to a large immigrant population particularly merchants from China. A great many heritage buildings have been preserved in Melaka and the town has been granted UNESCO World Heritage Status jointly with Georgetown in Penang in recognition of this.
In addition to the museums, palaces and colonial buildings there is also a lively and popular street market in Melaka on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. The market is called the Jonker Walk Night Market and it takes place in Melaka’s China Town area. The night market is a popular event and Melaka is busiest at the weekends as a consequence with some hotels putting up their room rates Friday to Sunday to capitalise on the increase in demand. Jonker Street closes to traffic at 18:00 on all three nights and the street becomes full of people visiting the market. The main attraction at the night market is the food although there is normally live entertainment as well, including Chinese dancers, a karaoke stage and live music at the bars along Jalan Hang Lekir.
