One cannot help but be amazed with the beauty of this bridge, connecting the provinces of Leyte and Samar. The structure is well-built and the surrounding area is very scenic. We can't help but do a jumpshot!

The major passage between Tacloban and Sama across the shipping channel. Provides unique views of the waterways and countryside. Good opportunities for photographers.

The longest bridge in the Philippines, it connects the Visayan islands of Leyte and Samar. It has made travel between these island-provinces much easier and has most likely improved commerce between them.

This grand structure links the islands of Leyte and Samar. A vital part of trade and commerce here in the Philippines. Spanning about 2.16 kilometers. An excellent focal point of Tacloban.

I had a change to have a prenup shoot with my client in this bridge. It is well made and it is long enough for other vehicles to pass even we are parked on the side of the bridge.

Nice to check this bridge out during early hours so there won't be a lot of people. You can already see the wear and tear quite evident in some parts of it, especially those submerged in water. Rumor has it that street kids were buried...More

You can get a jeepney from Tacloban public market. Look for a jeepney saying Sanjuanico bridge. the fare would be Php 20.
