Pandan

Pandan is a fourth class municipality in the province of Antique, Philippines. In the 2010 census data, it had a population of 32,494 people. Pandan is also one of the Antique Province's industrialized towns and a major tourist destination for its natural wonders, its cold spring, the Bugang River and white beaches along the Pandan Bay from Barangay Mag-aba to Barangay Duyong.BarangaysPandan consists of 34 barangays, of which 15 lie along the coast, 12 are inland, and 7 are upland.HistoryThe town was foemally established in 1752 by the Spanish Parishes in the province during the Philippines' colonization by Spain, which started in 1521 and ended with the Spanish–American War in 1899. During World War II, 1942 Japanese occupation of Panay Island saw the harassments and pandemonium in the area. The town was liberated in 1944 as part of the combined Allied forces campaign for the liberation of the Panay Island. In 1945, it was incorporated as a town under the fourth Philippine Republic.DemographicsLanguageThe Philippine dialect generally spoken in the province of Antique is called Kinaray-a . The people of Pandan—called "Pandananons"—uses a version of Kinaray-a which differs somewhat with that used by most of the other Antique residents. The Pandananon version is more similar to the dialect spoken in Aklan province, which shares a boundary with Pandan. Thus, for example, the English word "No" is "Wara" in Kinaray-a but "Uwa" or "Wa" in Pandananon. E.g. "There is no electricity today" translates into "Wara ti sulo kadya" in Kinaray-a, but "Uwa it iwag kaya" in Pandananon. Pandananons also speak and understand the Hiligaynon language.
