never walk around this place alone. its unsafe and never bring too many stuff with you most especially bag, money and cellphones and no jewelries as it'll attract locals on doing something wrong. this maybe the oldest city in town and has a few markets...More

Yes it is not clean and smells bad, and you have to beware of pickpockets and hawkers and beggars. Really you need a local bodyguard to make the best of it - if you can find someone who can be persuaded to go with you........More

If you are looking for bargains then head to colon street in Cebu it’s well worth the visit with heaps of different market style shops

Very busy commercial street, not so clean, and it looks like Manila’s Binondo or Divisoria. There are many shops, banks, and great restaurants here, but one needs to be very mindful of his/her belongings when walking on this street.

The place where you find the best prices and value for your money. From kitchen utensils, gadgets, appliances and baking materials etc. This the place to be. Just be cautious in your shopping here and avoid crowded places.

This is a very busy street where all walks of life come here. You have to be very careful if you come here since there are so many pick pocketers and snatchers. Most people here are locals. Only very few tourists who are brave enough...More

If you want to buy anything that you cannot find it in big malls, try this in Colon St. You can buy anything there from head to toe. The price is cheap. However, please be careful with your personal belongings while strolling on this street.

A place for shopping and a lot of restaurants around. But nothing really special, we were there after visiting the Cebu Monument nearby.

Great place to shop, amazing selection of shops here. Great values and prices. BUT, keep your valuables in your front pockets, don't wear jewelry. This is a pickpocket area.

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.
