Colon Street, Cebu City

1.0
#5 of 15 in Neighborhoods in Philippines
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. Our Cebu City visit planner makes visiting Colon Street and other Cebu City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Very dangerous place and said there are times when it seems. Go during the day. Just in case the back take ago. Who has that attitude wasn't the result I nothing to danger, the local atmosphere. But alas I have found any street children.

  • Crowded street with lots of people. Don't recommend walking there if you don't want your staff to be stolen. also lots of garbage beside the road with terrible smell.  more »
  • Typical Asian street where sells and buys everything. Confusion and habitual movement of hundreds of people crowded and confusing especially motorcycles. Typical of these regions, where hygiene standards creep.
