A Brief History___________________________

Nineteenth-century chronicler Licinio Ruiz mentions "Amblan", a settlement said to have been named after a superior kind of guava. The town was made a parish independent of Tanjay in 1848, was renamed New Ayuquitan in 1912, became Amlan after World War II.

The People______________________________

Majority of the people in the town speak the Cebuano dialect.

Commerce and Industry_____________________

Amlan's economy is anchored on fishing, copra and sugarcane, and its bustling Tandayag wharf, which is the seaport-of-call for Tañon Strait crossers from the province of Cebu.

The province's fuel and LPG supply is stored in depots nearby.

Cottage industries produce mats, baskets, bamboo furniture, and buri-craft.

Getting There and Away_____________________

Buses and jeepneys, from neighbouring cities and towns, pass through Amlan several times daily.

Fastcrafts from Liloan town of the island province of Cebu depart for Amlan daily.

Other Information__________________________

Its Church of St. Andrew the Apostle, completed in 1853, and said to have take 50 years to built, is the centerpiece of the town's tourism picture while providing photo-opportunists with a colonial period backdrop.

The ruins of watchtowers against the Moro depradations of old can still be seen in Buswang and near the mouth of the Amlan River; and two others near the school building of Ayuquitan and the barrio of Calo.

Amlan's unique crowd-drawer is the Budyas Festival which begins on the Tandayag pier with a traditional ritual blessing of fishing implements and the elaborately-decorated fleet which then ferries the patron's image in a fluvial procession to the chapel in Tandayag North.

For nature attractions, there is the serene Tambojangin River for freshwater swims and the splashy three-tiered Naibid Falls in Jantianon.
