Marcelo Fernan Bridge in Cebu, Philippines

If you are coming from the main Cebu island and want to go to Mactan, for sure you will be passing Marcelo B. Fernan Bridge. This bridge reminds me of Yokohama Bridge which I saw on a postcard sent to me by a Japanese friend. No wonder Marcelo Fernan bridge looks exactly the same with Yokohama bridge because it was constructed with the help of the Japanese Government.

I can't exactly remember how many times did I crossed this bridge during my stay in Cebu. I even remember walking on it when we visited some relatives in Mactan some years ago. It makes me feel good remembering it again.

I took this image during my last visit to the Philippines last 2010.

Marcelo Fernan Bridge is an extradosed cable-stayed bridge located in Metro Cebu, Cebu in the Philippines. It spans across Mactan Channel connecting Cebu Island to Mactan Island. The bridge has a total length of 1237 meters (4058.40 feet) with a center span of 185 meters (606.96 feet).
