Impressive bridge connecting two islands

This bridge connects Cebu to Mactan. The traffic flows well and smoothly. The bridge design is modern and makes traveling to both cities convenient

That bridge is quite an impressive piece of engineering and quite time-saving for local traffic. The independent bus services, which are frequent and cheap, are well off here.

You cross this bridge going to Mactan and the airport. Not very scenic or unusual. Too far to walk from anywhere so unless you are driving not very accessible.

Good views to Lapu Lapu and the city. Can be very busy any time of the day, but still a nice bridge.

New bridge with 4 lanes, 2 in each side built with the help of Japanese. You can cross from Cebu to Mactan.

I'm living in Mactan Island so when ever its rush hour we prefer to use this bridge in going home. Though the distance is farther but it will compensate the time you will be wasting and stressful in the old bridge.
