“A treasure!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

One of the best structure that the visayan people can treasure and call their own. Really an art and a must see. Only that you cannot stop along the bridge to take photos

“Attractive architecture”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

This long bridge has very attractive architecture. It looks out onto at least two islands on one side and five on the other, none of which seem to have white sand from what I could observe.

There is a footpath on each side.

Drivers are not allowed to stop on the bridge but traffic at 0900 on a weekday was fairly sparse so it was easy to slow down to 20kmh and take a photo from the vehicle in which I travelled.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

It's amazing to know and see this long bridge in the Philippines. The shape and the way it was built is unique, I think we are the only ones with this shape that is S and L, representing Samar and Leyte. Great architecture!
