Do we need fancy bridges with eye-catching arches? Maybe not, since a simple structure will probably get the job done just as well. You have to admit, though, that it is kind of nice seeing new pieces of infrastructure with some effort put into their designs. 

The latest Instagram-worthy bridge to rise in the Philippines is the Clarin Bridge across the Loboc River in Loay, Bohol. It spans 104 meters in length (as well as two approach roads that measure over 200 meters), features a pair of jaw-dropping arches, and is now open to motorists.
