Colon Street, Cebu City

(1/5 based on 420+ 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.
