Ibaan, officially the Municipality of Ibaan (Tagalog: Bayan ng Ibaan), is a 2nd class municipality in the province of Batangas, Philippines. According to the 2020 census, it had a population of 58,507 people. [3]

Ibaan is located 96 kilometres (60 mi) south of Manila. It is bounded on the northwest by San Jose, the northeast by Lipa City, the east by Rosario, the southeast by Taysan, and the southwest by Batangas City. It has a land area of 68.99 square kilometres (26.64 sq mi) at an altitude of 124 metres (407 ft) above sea level.

It is a predominantly Roman Catholic community, with small percentages of Protestants and members of the Iglesia ni Cristo. Tagalog is the local language in the Batangueño dialect; however, English is included in its educational curriculum and is often used in official dealings and transactions.

Temperature is moderate both in its rainy and dry seasons, conducive to farming, agricultural and livestock production, which are the most common occupations. There are fewer farmers each year as residents switch to hog-raising, which provides better income.[citation needed]

Ibaan is known as the home of the "kulambo" (mosquito net), as its production and trading has become one of the most profitable businesses in the locality. Ibaan is also known for its tamales that are wrapped in banana leaves.

The town celebrates its foundation day every February 11, with a simple festival called "Les Kuhliembo Festival", featuring their products: tamales, kulambo, habi, liempo, and tubo (sugar cane).
