Our experience there was a little bit scary because I’m not into crossing bridges with deep river below. We had to cross the first bridge and the movement of the bridge make us feel uneasy, as it will bend and sway more than normal. When we reach at end of the first bridge there are stores for souvenirs and buko juice. For the second time around we had to cross the second bridge and fighting again our fear to fall off but for you to relax, take your time and enjoy every movement or the sway of the bridge. Overall, we had a great time and experience together with my family.
