We rented a trike to go here from downtown Tacloban. 30 mins drive without traffic. Awesome sight! The bridge is shaking a bit every time a car passes by that's why we didn't went up the bridge to take a better pic. :(

Must see when you visit Tacloban. This bridge is very well built. It survived the 300 plus km winds from the Typhoon Yolanda. You can get some good pictures when you go over the bridge to samar. I always visit the San Juanico bridge while we are visiting Tacloban.

Getting there from the city was not great, roads were being widened so traffic was bad. It was slow going, cab was charging 800 to leyte landing and the bridge. A little rude and too familiar with us.

Although a little out of town, the ride is worth it. The longest bridge in the Philippines is a beautiful piece of architecture amongst the island scenery. Great for pics!

Best to visit in the early morning or in the afternoon. It is L-shaped on Leyte's Side and S-shaped on Samar's side. You can walk across or ride across and enjoy the scenic view where Leyte meets Samar. Feel the thrill of the bridge when big trucks pass by as you walk. Only, it's not easy to get there when...

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.
