Nice 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. Marcelo Fernan Bridge was opened in August 1999 to decongest the traffic from the older Mactan-Mandaue Bridge. The bridge has a total length of 1237 meters (4058.40 feet) with a center span of 185...

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.

The diagonal lines of the cable makes this bridge a nice subject for photography with lines and patterns, it is also a nice vantage point to take photos of the Mactan Channel.

The Marcelo Fernan Bridge is not far from where we live, so we always pass here when going to Lapulapu City or to the airport. It actually provides a short trip connecting Cebu and Mactan. I like the view from the bridge especially when there is a passing boat. But the bridge can have horrendous traffic during rush hours in... More
