We walked a bit and everytime a big vehicle, such as a truck, passes by, you can feel the bounce of the bridge but it was cool. Sort of a small adrenaline rush. I hope I can walk the entire length of the bridge next time. I've done longer now than my last walk here 7 years ago so that... More

The bridge itself is magnifecent with stunning views on each side. I visited Tacloban months after the typhoon and happy to see that the city has slowly rocovered.

San Juanico Bridge is the boundary between Leyte and Samar. This bridge was built during the era of Rumualdez-Marcoses. I've been many times in San JuanicoBridge since my high school years and my last visits was September 2013. The bridge shape was different amongst the bridges I visited. I walked (starting point in Leyte Part) going up to the center... More

It was a rare opportunity to see this very long bridge. When I went down our car, I felt the jolt of passing vehicles. But since this has been here for a very long period, I know how sturdy it was. I was lucky to catch the golden hours during our visit. It was indeed magical.

Even minus the promotion of the Marcoses, the fabled bridge still elicits gushes and shrieks simply because God, not the dictatorship, provided the excellent view. Not even Yolanda's unprecedented wrath could snatch that gorgeous view away.

Nice view of 2-km plus San Juanico Bridge, the strait it crosses, islets beneath and its SL-shape as it connects the islands of Samar and Leyte. Recommended for nostalgic walk...

It was my 2nd time to cross this famous Philippine bridge and San Juanico Bridge that connects Leyte and Samar provinces did not fail to bring a childish smile on my face. This 2nd visit was the opportune time to finally have a souvenir pic with this S-shaped bridge that crossed the sea. I had a hundred flashes with the... More

Although stopping at the middle of the bridge is a no-no, we couldn't help ourselves but park there and take snapshots of the surrounding areas of Leyte and Samar. There were also small islands beneath the bridge. The bridge was majestic that standing there just felt awesome. Of course, you have to watch out for the speeding buses, so better... More
