LAUREL

Laurel is a third class municipality in the province of BatangasPhilippines. Laurel was previously part of Talisay, its current neighbor town. The town was previously known as Bayuyungan. On May 25, 1961, the town of Talisay was divided into two municipalities, and the new town was renamed Laurel after Miguel Laurel, known as the first Laurel in the Philippines and a longtime patriarch of the place. According to the latest census, it has a population of 34,953 people in 5,153 households.

Small rice paddies on the foothills of Taal canyon ridge provide for ricefields to farmers.

The town's vast land resource provide ideal location for real estate developers such as Megaworld and Fil-Estate which are mostly based in Metro Manila.
