expecting a twist and a turn

colon - a jargon for the human intestines. but in cebu, it is a long street abuzz with people from all walks of life. oh yes, some are even caught jaywalking to reach the other mall across from the one they came. you can see a university along this avenue, banks, markets, schools, hotels, restaurants, commercial outlets, alleys leading to residential houses - everything. must be the busiest street in the entire city.

there's even a little monument marking the end/start of the long road.

go with a local

The oldest street in the Philippines they say.. some great deals if you know where to look, but, watch your self... go with a local..(dont stray alone). not a local that gets kickbacks from the shops.. maybe from the hotel, they probably have a city guide... fun, definitive Philippines shopping experience

Typical sidewalk

This photo is just the perfect subject about situational awareness. I am using a local situation because I am from Cebu and my audience are predominantly Cebuanos.

Walking Distance from the Pier, Other Tourist Attracttions
Jan 2020
Every public utility jeepney passes near or on Colon Street, the oldest street in the country. Better avoid this area because there is no order here and traffic enforcers are not around when needed. Its a narrow road where the stores lining the street are old and selling cheap items. You can only use this as your landmark since it's in the center of the city. Old buildings are aplenty here. But there are affordable hotels and lodging houses within walking distance from Colon Street. Churches, like the Santo Rosario and the Metropolitan Cathedral are walking distrance from here. The Southern Integrated Overland Bus Terminal is also walking distance from Colon. I was on this street during the annual Sinulog festival where most inner city streets were closed for the religious procession and the street parade.

A lot to see

Some old fashioned malls, but what I loved most was the street food here and the Lechon in a older mall. Lots of families here and enjoyed the breadth of shops
