Badian is a 3rd class municipality in the province of Cebu, Philippines. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 37,912 people. Badian is 98 km (61 mi) southwest of Cebu City and is bordered to the north by the town of Moalboal, to the west is the Tañon Strait, to the east is the town of Dalaguete, and to the south is the town of Alegria.
Badian got its name from a plant called, “badyang“, which was once abundant in the area. Long time when Philippines is occupied by the Spaniards, they (Spaniards) found it difficult to pronounce the name “Badyang” so they dropped the “g” and the “y” was changed to “i” hence the town came to be known as Badian.
