My first coming over here was sooo wowwww. I love the design and the length was too long to imagine how the government created such project connecting the two islands in a further distance. I was impressed and all i could say was wow.

This review is quite late. The San Juanico Bridge connects the Provinces of Samar and Leyte and is remote from Manila. I took the bus from Pasay City all the way to Tacloban City just to see this bridge upclose and personal.

Your Leyte trip should include a visit to this Philippine landmark in the Visayas. Just ask the police on duty very nicely that you will just take photos on the bridge.

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