5 Extreme Bridges in the Philippines that Offer Stunning Views

Let’s cross that bridge when we get there!


Up North, we have the Buntun Bridge, a steel truss bridge river that is the second longest bridge in the country, after San Juanico Bridge. With a length of 1.098 km, this bridge links Tuguegarao City to the 2nd and 3rd District Municipalities of the Cagayan Province and the Apayao Province.

Often overlooked by tourists, the Buntun Bridge serves as the gateway to the provincial capital of Tuguegarao City and is part of the Santiago-Tuguegarao Road, a major junction of the Pan-Philippine Highway. The utilitarian and lengthy steel bridge offers an unobstructed view of the mighty Cagayan River, the longest and largest river in the Philippines. It looks particularly picturesque during sunset.
