5th District

Binalonan

1st Class Municipality

Number of Barangay: 24

Binalonan got its name from the Pangasinan term “balon,” meaning packed lunch. The town was originally owned by a Spanish occupier named Don Salvador, and his workers used to take their lunch and siesta under camachile trees located in the center of Don Salvador’s property, which shielded them from the heat of the sun. When Ilocano immigrants came to work for Don Salvador, they asked him where to locate his land, and he replied, “find the camachile trees where people bring their balon to eat.”

Binalonan is situated in eastern Pangasinan and is part of the province’s fifth congressional district. It is 51 kilometers away from Lingayen, the capital town of Pangasinan. The town has a land area of 8,400 hectares and a population of 56,382 according to the 2020 census.

While in Binalonan, tourists can visit several attractions, such as the Ju-Po Farm, a 1.5-hectare farm located in Barangay Mangcasuy. The farm is surrounded by lush greenscapes and rice fields, and several restored antique houses were put together by the farm’s owner and head curator, Dr. Apolinario Bautista. Visitors can also explore the Lubas Valley Farm, an eco-friendly attraction that promotes recycling and sustainable tourism through its clean source of energy and locally cultivated products. The Balai Iti Dumanon Visitors Center is also open to provide information and a brief history of Binalonan.

Under the leadership of then-mayor and the incumbent governor Ramon Mon-Mon Guico III, the 26-hectare North Luzon Aero Industrial Park (NAIP) was created, making it the first industrial park in Pangasinan. Corporations such as Sumi-North Wiring Systems Corp., a domestic subsidiary of Japanese conglomerate Sumitomo Electric Industries Inc., have already started operations in the park, generating tens of thousands of jobs for Binalonians and other nearby towns.
