Very long bridge that provides great views. Very high in middle & able too see much of the river damage of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda.

Though not really in the city of Tacloban, the San Juanico Bridge is worth visiting while in Leyte. The ride across the bridge is beautiful with Leyte on one side and Samar on the other. You can stop off along the way for views of the scenery including fishermen going out for their daily catch. If you are in Tacloban... More

I walked from the Samar side of this beautiful bridge that snakes up to a height of 41 meters before it descends into the island of Leyte. The walk offers unforgettable vistas of the main islands, the smaller islands, the bridge, and the thousands of whirlpools that are a feature of the San Juanico Strait. Pedestrians enjoy the safety of... More

I can still remember passing by this bridge when my family had a vacation way back in 2005, both in Samar and Leyte to visit our relatives. This bridge definitely was one of the things I will never forget. We even requested before to the bus driver that we will get off to take a quick snapshot, to bad I... More

Yep... its a bridge.. Yep its pretty large and a slightly odd shape... but then thats about it. I mean its the biggest thing in town and I can imagine it changed the life of local residents when it was built, but at the end of the day its just a bridge. Probably nicer of you walked or rode over... More

There are many bridges in the world that are longer and larger. But I rate this bridge among the most attractively designed and most well kept. The color of the bridge competes with the radiance of the sun and brings new charm to the waters flowing below. Hats off to the visionaries and designers of this pride of the nation.
