About Bedok
The Bedok Town Area, once a hilly region, covers a land area of approximately 9.4 square kilometers, 42% of which are designated residential districts. The hilly are is its focus and orientation, with parks and multiplexes built on this high ground of the town.

There are 8 sub-zones in bedok mainly Kaki Bukit, Bedok Reservoir, Kembangan, Bedok North, Frankel, Bedok South, Siglap and Bayshore.

History
Part of the Bedok area was reclaimed in 1966. It became a constituency in 1976 under the charge of Haji Sha'ari Tadin who formed the Citizens' Consultative Committee. In 1980, Professor S. Jayakumar took over as MP for Bedok. The name Bedok is actually one of the oldest names dating from the time of Sir Stamford Raffles. The Malay word Bedok (pronounced as bedoh with the ‘h’ pronounced as ‘k’) refers to a large drum used in the olden days to call the Muslim community to the mosques for prayers, or to sound an alarm, before the days of modern technology.

A large residential area closely situated to Singapore Changi Airport and Tanah Merah Country Club, Bedok District also has many famous eateries (as a result of the large residential area). This suburb is equipped with all the necessary facilities such as shopping malls, stadium, clinics and schools.

Siglap,  Frankel, Kembangan are areas that have some very desirable landed property and condominiums. A couple of Singapore's ministers are also staying there. Bayshore,  a high-end residential condominium, is close to Bedok and has an excellent view of the sea.
