Travelling to a place where you haven’t gone before could be perceived to be so far. We came from the southern portion of Philippines and we went to the northern part just to see the beautiful sceneries of the Philippines. We attended a conference in Manila and we decided to take a side trip to Ilocos provinces. We went up to the north and see the snaking bridge along the side of the beach and beside the mountainous area of the Municipality of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte. I thought that the bridge is a typical bridge connecting two islands but such bridge is just constructed beside the mountain. Such is the reason it is also called a viaduct.

Patapat Bridge or Patapat Viaduct carries a two-lane traffic. One lane for each direction. It crosses the Pasaleng Bay in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte. Its Official name is Patapat Viaduct but it is also popularly known as Patapat Bridge. It is being maintained by the Department of Public Works and Highways of the Philippines and designed as a concrete viaduct with 13oo-meter long and elevated with only 31 meters above the sea level.

See the picture below. I took this picture with my Samsung Galaxy S5 and posted it in my Instagram account. I also shoot the bridge with my Nikon D90, so, if you want to get a copy of the bridge with HD quality, please email me. I hope you will enjoy looking at the picture of the Patapat Bridge.
