This street is lined with stores that sell almost anything. It is an experience to haggle for prices of items and go from stall to stall or store to store to see what is being offered.

I forgot how we got here. But here is where we got our pasalubongs. Ang gaganda rin kasi ng mga design nung mga T-shirts nung nakita namin habang nakasakay kami sa jeep kaya bumaba na rin kami dito.

Colon st is one of the oldest streets in cebu city. It is amazingly busy and one any corner you can but anything from gold fish to flowers to tools to cell phones to led lights and basically anything. You can get pirate DVD and any cell phone repair or iPhone subscription cracking. Colon street is a wonderful experience and compares with Thailand night street markets. Travellers just be mindful that many poor people frequent area so dress approitatly. Do not flash jewelry on your body. But it's safe if you stay aware, just like any Asian market area. Night markets are great also with vast array of street food and second hand clean cloths. Anything you seek you may find. Great experience.

Cool Street and the nearby side streets are full of life and energy and I really recommend a visit to check out the area.

There are street stalls and mini shops selling goods of all kinds, both pirated obviously merchandise and legal.Handmade crafts and fresh fruit s and vegetables.

There are sizzling wok cooks and people selling all kinds of meats and freshly made baked goods.

Music very loudly blares out from individual shops as taxis drive insanely disobeying every sensible traffic law and each funnily honking at each other.

I enjoyed the cooking smells which seem to permeate every back alley and the frenetic chaos and madness of it all as people come up to you trying to sell you all kinds of funny things.Really ? Am I going to be buying a shovel and taking it on an airplane haha.

I recommend a trip to the Colon area and definitely bring a camera ready for some possible craziness.
