If you look to buy cloths and other products, incl. souvenirs for a good place you must go to Colon. The only problem is to find a parking place in this area

Very busy commercial street, not so clean, and it looks like Manila’s Binondo or Divisoria. There are many shops, banks, and great restaurants here, but one needs to be very mindful of his/her belongings when walking on this street.

The place where you find the best prices and value for your money. From kitchen utensils, gadgets, appliances and baking materials etc. This the place to be. Just be cautious in your shopping here and avoid crowded places.

This is a very busy street where all walks of life come here. You have to be very careful if you come here since there are so many pick pocketers and snatchers. Most people here are locals. Only very few tourists who are brave enough...More

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.
