I find it strange that the bridge is a 'tourist attraction' but then again I do have fond memories of crossing the bridge when in Cebu as there were lots of mopeds with 4-5 people on them everyone waving and laughing so its fun to see things like that when in the taxi!

Something to be proud of. When you pass the bridge, it feels like you are in another place....feels good.

I'm unsure why this bridge is listed as a tourist attraction. It's just a bridge, not unlike a million other bridges you've crossed. It's not even lit or decorated during Christmas or Sinulog. The only thing mildly interesting about the bridge is, it goes over waterfront squatter areas of Cebu. These are the kinds of places that gets wiped out... More

Named after a prominent Cebuano judge, the Marcelo Fernan Bridge is a most convenient and fastest way to the Mactan Cebu International Airport. We live in Mandaue City which quite near the bridge which we always refer to as "the second bridge." The 1st bridge, an older structure, is further away hence we less access it. The Marcelo Fernan Bridge... More

This is a modern bridge that connects Mactan Island to Cebu City. In Mactan Island (or Lapu Lapu City) you will find Mactan International Airport, and beach resorts scattered all over the island. There are two bridges that connects the island to the bigger island CEBU. Mactan Bridge and this Marcelo Fernan Bridge. Gets to be busy here though during... More

We passed by this bridge a number of times since our hotel was in lapu-lapu. The views in here, either in morning, noon or evening was great, since you'll see the beauty of both islands, aside from the waters of course that you'll be passing by. If I'll be staying in Cebu for long, I'll try biking or jogging in... More

I've always been fascinated by hanging bridges and this one is no exception. Twice I have passed by both night time, but still I was able to appreciate it.

One of the two bridges connecting Mandaue City, Cebu to Lapu2x City. Its modern architectural design makes this bridge famous and strong compared to the other bridge.. :)

Connects Mactan Island to the mainland. Modern and no planning really needed because you'd surely cross this bridge when going to Cebu City from the airport. Clean and well-maintained.
