Colon Street, Cebu City
(1/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Considered the Philippines' oldest road, Colon Street in downtown Cebu features an array of affordable shops and restaurants frequented by locals. Tracing its origins back to the 16th century, when Spanish conquistadores established a colony here, the street remains the heart of commercial activity in town, maintaining a busy, lively atmosphere, and unfortunately attracting an increased amount of criminal activity. Employ basic safety measurements when shopping or sightseeing in this district. Work out when and for how long to visit Colon Street and other Cebu City attractions using our handy Cebu City trip itinerary planner.

  • Located in central Cebu to this area is busy and rundown & thr streets are dirty and there a lot of people begging on the streets There are some very sick nasty hotels and some reasonable hotels here ...  more »
  • Where all the Suppliers of all things you need are all here! Its a busy street where all the business, Suppliers and Retailers are all here. 
  • 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

  • Hooray to the oldest street in the Philippines. It's just a walk away from nearby Basilica, Magellan's Cross, Fort San Pedro and the museums.
