Let’s keep it real most of us cannot fit Filipino sizes. If you’re a big guy like me the best options at SM Big Max section or Although in my experience I’ve found shopping at is better since they now offer free shipping to the Philippines on orders for $49 or more which nowadays is pretty easy to get to. I use Amazon to get my shaving supplies, shoes, and clothes (including underwear). I don’t buy electronics from there since the import fees are usually pretty high. You can also use Shopee but the quality may be lower.

Electronics-SM or Colon Street

If you are looking for electronics that are high-quality and reasonably priced, you can visit SM City Cebu Cyberzone. This is a four-level area within SM City Cebu mall that houses over 200 shops that sell gadgets, accessories, software, hardware, and other electronic products. You can find brands such as Apple, Samsung, Sony, Asus, Acer, Canon, Nikon, and more at this place. SM City Cebu Cyberzone is located at North Reclamation Area in Cebu City.

If you are looking for electronics that are cheap and varied, you can visit Colon Street. This is the oldest street in the Philippines that dates back to the Spanish colonial period. It is also the busiest street in Cebu City that has hundreds of shops that sell electronics, clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry, and other items. You can find new or second-hand gadgets such as laptops, cellphones, cameras, tablets, and more at this place. Colon Street is located in downtown Cebu City.
