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

Last time I visited, we only drive a short distance on the bridge and reversed. This time, I was visiting Samar from Tacloban so I observed that the return from Samar allowed an approach that shows the full steelwork of this Marcos era, impressive bridge. Unfortunately it is only a single lane each way and one is not supposed to... More

This was great to see, as also the building that is happening in Tacloban, I hope these poor people can get back on their feet as quickly as possible. It is Heartbreaking to see the devastation Yolanda (Haiyan) has caused.

It's a tradition to visit the bridge and have your pics taken under the sign, while dodging the traffic of course! Always great views and a nice sea breeze :)
