Bridge is bridge. What I first noticed when I saw the bridge was it indicated the Marcelo Fernan Bridge. The view from the bridge was breathtaking and awesome; same with other Philippine bridges. On the bridge, you could see the unobstructed view of the Metropolitan...More

This bridge connects Lapu lapu City and Cebu City. Tourists from Mactan International Airport will pass in this bridge going to Cebu City. You cannot stop here and take pictures because its dangerous, however, if you love to walk you can do it.
