This famous bridge connecting Samar and Tacloban is historical. Walking from one end to another has always been a dream! :) No stopping is allowed in the bridge for public/private transportation. Tours are available located under the bridge. :)

I've always wanted to walk across this bridge and finally had the opportunity on a gorgeous summer day. If you are in the area it's worth the time to walk to the center for the view and some great photos!

I wonder how past government was able to build infrastructure such as this. It's really something we (Filipinos) can all be proud of. So many typhoons have passed but it still stood up,unlike the many other smaller, poor quality infra that we have at present.

The title already describes San Juanico Bridge. It was built to perfection. The water below is clean. The view is scenic --- green everywhere. Hope to have bridges as this anywhere else in the Philippines.

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