View From San Juanico

When one visits Leyte, one should not fail to visit the country's longest bridge: The San Juanico. The San Juanico Bridge, completed during the Marcos administration, connects the island of Leyte to its twin, the island of Samar. It has a total length of 2.16 kilometers. The bridge has 43 spans and medium size boats can pass beneath its large main arch the top of which rises 41 meters above the sea.

Its original name was the Marcos Bridge and rumor has it that it is Marcos' "Taj Mahal" to his first lady Imelda who hails from Leyte. It connects Tacloban (Leyte) to Sta. Rita (Samar). It spans over the picturesque San Juanico Strait, the narrowest strait in the Philippines. It took 4 years for the Bridge to be completed.

After the HLMP training held last week in Ormoc City, the group went to San Juanico Bridge before heading for the airport in Tacloban to take some pictures and visit this beautiful bridge. According to many, San Juanico Bridge is the most beautiful bridge in the entire Philippines. And after seeing the view from the bridge, it is definitely a beautiful sight.
