Everytime we visit Samar we pass here and I enjoy the view over the whole area. It is like the brigde is built in the nature here. It is not huge and special

This was my 2nd visit to this bridge connecting Leyte and Samar. The first was in Dec. 2002 after the NYD at Ormoc City. My first was riding on bus crossing this bridge but not my 2nd visit. Footwalk from Leyte to the peak of the bridge and then look down on the sea below with its current and weaving... More

This bridge has been one of my fantasy place to visit. My elementary books made it really cool and long but it wasn't that long. It's a great venue for jogging though. And the though of it bridging provinces is but awesome.

I crossed the San Juanico Bridge early this month, April 2015 several times between Tacloban and Samar. Nice bridge with breathtaking views of Samar and Leyte. The bridge was not crowded at all....great flow. There is security on both sides of the bridge as you approach so it's safe. It has an interesting, curvy design which makes it unique. A... More

I was in Tacloban for a business but was able to have some side trip in San Juanico Bridge. It's a marvel to see the site of a steel bridge connecting two provinces (Leyte & Samar) having a sea with a strong current in between. It's good to note that it's well maintained and well guarded. A must see when... More

This bridge is an architectural wonder in an area devastated by Typhoon Yolanda in Nov 2013. The beautiful curving bridge is just fantastic and the views of the bay, nearby islands, and Samar are wonderful, especially at sunset! It's a miracle the bridge wasn't seriously damaged by the typhoon but it seems to be in fine shape.

I first saw the bridge at 12 & just recently saw it again. To me, it looks as fun, interesting, odd and beautiful as before. Maybe because I went there as a kid, before I saw humongous bridges in other countries, but San juanico has left its mark on me. I still get a mood boost passing it and seeing... More
