The structure is just awesome. For me it's comparable to the San Francisco Bridge. One of the great thing about it is that you can stop in the middle of the bridge so you and your friends can take souvenir photos

Read about this bridge when I was in grade school. To cross the bridge which connects Leyte and Samar is one of my bucket list. Still well maintaned and well guarded by local policemen, a good project of the government which the people of Tacloban and Samar is still benefiting.

This bridge is very beautiful and unique, affording a stunning view of Samar, and the surrounding islets, as well as a great look at all the whirlpools in the channel.

I rode on my mountain bike with friends from Tacloban to San Juanico Bridge. The view at the bridge is breathtaking. The road to San Juanico was under construction so it was a bit dusty but if you go early morning, there isn't much traffic.

What i liked about san juanico bridge is that you can go down from your van and walk through the entire bridge and you will be fascinated of the fishes on the deep blue sea. You will be amazed how the bridge is built considering it is above the sea and quite long.

The San Juanico bridge is a fantastic Icon of the Philippines as the longest bridge in the whole country. It connects the two islands- Leyte and Samar and actually forms the shape of an L and an S. If you can, walk along the footpath of the bridge because the views are stunning! You won't regret the many great photos... More
