I don't know why its considered as one of Cebu's attractions. But its a good place to jog. Everyone will cross the bridge from the airport going to Cebu or Mandaue City since its closest from Mactan Airport than first bridge.

Nice bridge, has some good views. You will probably cross it if you go from the airport to cebu city. Wouldn't go out of my way to see it.

Marcelo Fernan Bridge is an extradosed cable-stayed bridge located in Metro Cebu, Cebu in the Philippines. It spans across Mactan Channel connecting Mandaue to Mactan Island.

I have no idea why this is listed as an attraction. It is a bridge, that's for sure, and I guess it attracts visitors since they have to cross it to get to Cebu from the airport. It is a nice looking bridge, but not unlike anything else you can see in the world. I've crossed this bridge hundreds of... More

I have been crossing this bridge a number of times already by car and by foot. By foot because this has been our training route during our "3 bridge LSD - Cansaga Bridge, Marcelo Fernan Bridge and the old bridge" and many times part of our marathon route. To me, this serves as another icon for Cebu. This can be... More

Passed here on our way to the hotel and captured great photo. There's really nothing to see (especially when you are inside a moving car).

It crosses the water. Not a big deal I have no idea why this is even on here. I feel that cebu is lacking tourist destinations that they need to add this bridge as an attraction.
