Worth going to this bridge. It is a lovely place for sightseeing and picture taking. Really beautiful place! The bridge is worth the trip even just to experience it. Really a tourist spot. Don't visit Leyte without seeing the San Juanico Bridge!

It was nice seeing a landmark that connects Samar and Leyte provinces. Great view and worth the trip even via public transportation.

On trip advisor it is one of the highlights of Tacloban. It is located at the outskirts of Tacloban so you will need to travel for an hour measured from the Robibson. The view on the bridge is good and relaxing. The view is good, but nothing more then that.

It is the most beautiful bridge I've seen in the Philippines. It s well worth making the trip to San Juanico Bridge. I attempted to cross it since I was told that it was only 2.1 Kim's from Leyte island to Samar....but my fear got in the way. The bridge's seismic gaps move whenever big vehicles pass by. Crossing it... More

San Juanico is popularly known as the longest bridge in the Philippines bridging Leyte and Samar. Rumor has it that former president, Marcos, had this dedicated to his wife, Imelda. Among all the bridges I have seen, this is the most picturesque so far.
