This bridge which connects Samar and Leyte is truly worth the trip to Tacloban. It has beautiful scenic views and the bridge indeed curved like an S for Samar and an L for Leyte. You can stop on a safe point as long as you park your car on the sidewalk to allow space for incoming vehicles. Definitely a must... More

I have gone back and forth from Leyte to Samar and crossing this bridge everytime and I could still never get enough of the scenic view it offers. The best view is at dawn and at dusk. This is the longest bridge in the Philippines and has an L-shaped Leyte side to represent Leyte and S-shaped Samar side to represent... More

If you are in Tacloban, you need to take the trip to Samar Island just to experience the bridge. I believe it's the longest bridge in the Philippines.

San Juanico bridge connects the provinces of Leyte and Samar. It is shaped like the letters "L" on the Leyte side and half of it forms like the letter "S" on the Samar side. Has great views of the mountain (not sure what the name is) and of course San Juanico Strait. You can take pictures at your own risk... More

We walked over it was nice great views, everyone waves at the foreigners. From the bridge you can see just how shallow the San Juanico Strait is and how dangers for boats.

This is quite a long bridge. Described as the golden gate bridge of the Philippines. It's a bloody bridge

Aside from it being the longest bridge in the Philippines and the view of mountains and sea, there is nothing much to do here. You can rent a trike and ask the driver to bring you to the bridge. Take pictures, enjoy the scenery, and that's it. The colour of the bridge is red, it connects two islands and forms... More
