Land Area: 276.05 km ²
Population: 79,098 (2010)

A Brief History___________________________

Tanjay is said to have been named after a Chinese trader and from a tall tree, "Tan Hai".

In 1580, it was designated as the first Catholic parish of Negros Oriental.

In 2001, it became the province's 5th city.

The People______________________________

Majority of the population speak a very distinct Cebuano dialect.

Commerce and Industry_____________________

Sugarcane plantations can be found all over the town, as well as shimmering bangus (milkfish) ponds.

Getting There and Away_____________________

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

Vans-for-hire going to Tanjay are also available.

Other Information__________________________

Tanjay City is reputed to have the highest concentration of professionals among its population, as well as for having produced the most number of musical talents for the province. It is best known, moreover, for two other proud-makers: the portable feast "budbud sa Tanjay", which has birthed a Budbud Festival due to the popularity of its glutinous delicacy; and the "Sinulog de Tanjay", a festival, with an 1814 ancestry, revived in the 1980's to enliven the fiesta.

Tanjay's Friday nights' ballrom dancing at the plaza draws aficionados from as far as Dumaguete.

The small but postcard-pretty Mojon Church is a landmark, as is the Casa Grande of the Central Azucarera de Bais. Farther inland, a trek takes one to Luparan Falls and wooded elevations where bird-watching can be rewarding.
