This is a very high risk Spot for expats visiting Cebu and quite frankly shouldn't be recommended because it's dangerous and not safe for expat adults or kids and has nothing worth the risk of seeing. There is much better spots in Cebu... xx

If you just want to check this area off your places to see then go ahead and go here. For me, there's nothing to see here and it quite reminds me of an old area in Manila where it is dirty and polluted.

I've listed top things to-do and must see locations in Cebu and Colon Street is one of them. Great to observe how this city started in one long street.

This area seriouly needs TLC by the government. It can be a good tourist attraction but unfortunately pickpockets and hustlers may ruin your day. If you really want to visit, watch your valuables if you don't want to ruin your vacation

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.
