colon st is an old street, lots of commercial establishments, fast food restaurants etc.. buildings are old, surroundings are kinda dirty because there are many sidewalk vendors.

Someone told me that Colon is getting better so I made sure to check it out while I am back in town. Wrong! No change. It is very congested and stinky. Sorry, I am just speaking the truth.

A place to buy pasalubong items from key chains, tees, local products such as bags, scarves etc. Place is walking distance from Magellan’s Cross & Basilica. Go haggle with the vendors!

We got a bit lost in trying to find the Fort and wanted to have a drink in a cafe and couldn’t find any, we stumbled upon this street. And thought, why not just having a look. Well, don’t bother! Disappointingly uninteresting and poorly equipped.

Designer and Brand name copy stores and market streets. Bargains galore. Lots of fast food restaurants, also local cuisine. Just beware of pick pockets. Don't show off your expensive jewelry or cellphone. If you want a bargain then head for Colon.

Colon street is the oldest street in the Philippines. You can buy anything you want within walking distance. Its like the new york. The place is crowded but worth exploring. One the place where the trading started in Cebu.

It is not very far from Magellan’s cross. Use Google Map to direct you there easily. It was a busy old street with lots of people and sidewalk vendors selling all kinds of things. There are also a few supermarkets and convenience stores as well...More

One of the Oldest Street in the Philippines. This is the Main access road from south to north. The only problem here if rush hour because it is traffic.

the best way is by cab. From robinson is straight down the road about 2 Km. colon road is quite long. many shops on both side of the road. Beware of pick pocketers. many shopping centres are found along the road.
