We took a scooter ride out to the bridge at night. The stars and view were nice. It was a way to pass the time, but it was still just a bridge.

This huge bridge is unique in the Philippines by its size, beauty and usefulness. It cannot be missed when you cross over from Samar island to Leyte island and avoids you the crossing of treacherous waters with high current.

You can get some photographs here, and the obstructions are few. The view of two land masses are clearly visible, and enjoyable to look at.

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
