It's very funny because some of the people here doesn't know where the Colon Obelisk or the landmark is. The security guard of a bank he pointed at the wrong direction. He even suggest me not to go there because it's dangerous at night.
Need to beautify the Obelisk because this is the landmark of the oldest street in the country.

Average market street with cheap stands and shops for clothes, bags, footwear, jewelry, and other items. A good visit for people who like thrift stores.

this place is where you can do your shopping rather than go to sm or ayala.
You can find lots of things cheap as well as loads of food.
best place to go for food and see the old style buildings.

pavements can be narrow in some areas

Locals told me not to go there alone. Don't wear any jewelry either or swing bags or camera. They suggested maybe I shouldn't go at all.

Yes, I was warned about walking in the streets of Colon but it is a amazing place to buy cheap stuff & there are a lot of items you can buy there. Good place to visit, just be careful.
