This street has everything: affordable items, lots of stores and food chain, however the street is hounded by beggars, prostitutes/nilatch and snatchers who follow you everywhere. Trust me, I was a victim of a robbery holdup on that street. That kind of experience would ruin...More

This is the oldest street in Cebu as it became the center of trade during the Spanish era. It's quite a busy street as still it is the center of commerce and transportation.

Used to be the oldest street in the Philippines but sad to say civilization has already taken it's place. Feel free to take a walk and discover the place is still thriving to maintain it's past.

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.
