My love for all things old is undeniable - old songs, old houses, and old streets. Top of my list when I visited the province of Cebu in the Visayas region is to visit one of the Philippines' oldest streets - Colon Street.

Colon street has become a major business district in Cebu City. There is an abundance of establishments from selling clothes, shoes, appliances and tons of fast foods.

Though Colon Street is filled with countless shops until you drop, my beau and I went here for one reason, to witness the Colon Street Monument. This obelisk stands tall at the end corner of Colon street. It is a towering symbol of Cebu from the olden days.  The marker is a point of reference to further explore Cebu City's rich heritage through various landmarks and historic sights.

Not far from the Colon Street Monument is the Cebu Heritage Monument which I shall also be featuring this month of May.

The easiest way to go to Colon Street is to take a cab which is fairly available throughout the city. But to get here, we wanted to experience just like the locals. So from the Cebu South Terminal (coming from another well-loved Cebu province which I shall be featuring in the coming months), we boarded a jeepney bound for Colon Street. There are certain jeepney codes that directly ply to Colon Street. If you're coming from Parkmall or SM in Mandaue, take the "01K" jeepney code.
