The San Juanico Bridge

Considered as one of the most fascinating and is known as the longest and one of the most beautifully designed bridge in the Philippines, the San Juanico offers an impressive picturesque views of whirlpools in their thousands and small islets of both Samar and Leyte, two provinces that were linked by the bridge. It was a gift of former President Marcos to his wife, Imelda, who is a native of Leyte as a testimony of his lover for her.
The bridge's length is over 2 kilometres that crosses the San Juanico Strait. It forms the letters "L and S" which stand for Leyte and Samar. Approximately ten minutes from downtown Tacloban, the bridge is accessible by passenger jeepneys, motor-cabs, buses, and private vehicles. It was completed in 1973 with the help of Japanese engineers, and our very own, Construction and Development Corporation of the Philippines - now the Philippine National Construction Corporation.
