It is one of the best suit to take a picture here. I love this bridge very much because this is my hometown. And for the information of everyone, it is the longest Suspension Bridge in Asia.

Magapit Bridge is just like other bridges anywhere, but the spectacular view of Cagayan River makes this special. I got here twice when i circumvent North Luzon after leaving Apayao and going to Tuguegarao.

Didn't get to see this bridge in all its glory as passed over in evening, perhaps would look better at sunrise or sunset. But like many other road bridges in the Philippines expect to see people taking pictures, stepping out into highway to get better view without consideration to traffic thundering by!

It's a great and picturesque place for viewing the sunrise/sunset. Volume of vehicles is okay when we visited during the weekdays. Not for those who are easily nauseated/very nervous as the bridge swings a bit - of course it's a suspension bridge.

Some camps considered it as the first suspension bridge in southeast Asia. But that's beside the point, the Magapit Suspension Bridge is one of the enduring legacies of President Ferdinand Marcos. It is also one of the nicest backdrops for selfies. A day will come when it becomes Patapat Viaduct's main rival. Haha!

It was a great experience passing this wonderful man made bridge from area of Lal-lo to the area heading to Ballesteros or North. without this, it'll be so far to travel just to go north or ilocos. being here is one of a kind experience.

Driving by this for the first time was kind of cool since it was a mark of how far we've been traveling and we just started that day. It is a long suspended bridge over the wide Cagayan Valley River. It is the first hanging bridge in the Philippines.

Everytime we visit my husband's hometown in Lal-lo, Cagayan, we always make it a point to visit Magapit bridge. Halfway across the bridge we would usually stop, go down for some picture takings, or stay by the railings to view Cagayan River specially at sunset. It is not a busy bridge though, but every time a vehicle crosses we find... More

Experiencing the bridge was short but meanigful. It was like seeing the San Francisco suspension Bridge of the Americans. It is nearest to the farthest KM marker up North of the Philippines-KM 714.It is an achievement passing thru this way by land after barely 4hours from Pagudpud. It also serves us the boundary between Ilocos region and Cagayan. And i... More

The journey started in Baguio City, Benguet. I was supposed to be in Ilocos Norte for a series of business meetings with the president of our company. Unfortunately, I had unfinished business in Cauayan, Isabela so what am I to do? Baguio to Nueva Vizcaya is approximately 109 km via Ambuclao Road. This scenic road will let you pass two... More
