This is in one of the oldest parts of Cebu. It is good if you want to shop for clothes and odd bits that are a lot cheaper than what you find in the malls. I wouldnt feel safe in this area during the night.

People are rubbing each other's elbow.. that's how tight it is in this place... Plus the noisy surroundings and the annoying unnecessary loud voices from people around.

It is a road aged more than 300 years where you can see many highlights in. Simply stopped the bus, crossed the road to reach to our new destination. Very busy always.

Reminds me of Time Square💖 it was surreal at first because it was pretty much like a late version of Time Square but then you get used to it.

One of the oldest street that needs to be upgraded. It use to be the entertainment center but the malls are attracting most of the people because of the air conditioning
