Marcelo Fernan Bridge, Cebu City

Categories: Bridges, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
2.3/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
The widest and longest bridge in Cebu, Marcelo Fernan Bridge spans across a sea channel connecting two islands and offering scenic views of the coast on both sides. The Japanese government helped fund the construction of the cable-suspended bridge, which spans over 1,200 m (4,000 ft) and carries the name of Cebu’s former Supreme Court judge and senator. You can either walk on wide pedestrian lanes or drive over the bridge to enjoy the views. The traffic on the bridge gets heavy occasionally, since many cars pass over on their way to the airport. On the Mactan side, visit a small park below the bridge, a favorite gathering place for locals.

  • Sightseeing in Cebu who is the bridge passes almost without a doubt. Japanese might be innocuous to the bridge may be known as an important and modern road for Cebu. Thanks to this bridge from Cebu IT Park was not only about 40 minutes by taxi from Mactan international airport. Going to the Airport (fares about 500 yen) is a bit crowded, so people should leave as soon as possible. * At the taxi fare is approximately 500 yen, and documented, but got in the car if you do not properly negotiated and menus are. It seems that my friend paid 1200 yen. Make sure to be instructed to use a meter to avoid trouble, fare 40 pesos.

  • The bridge is relatively new and in was funded by a Japanese government 3rd world development fund. This bridge is often the most efficient and quickest way to Mactan and the airport - or it was until the worsening Cebu traffic resulted in transit times of up to one hour to cross the bridge. You are better off in a helicopter
