Kembangan (Malay for 'expansion') is much influenced from its Malay heritage. Most of the streets in Kembangan take on Malay names and the Malay terms “lorong” and “jalan” instead of “street” or “avenue” i.e. Lorong Sarina, Lorong Melayu, Jalan Senyum, Jalan Selamat etc. Little is known about the history of Kembangan, but one can say without doubt that Kembangan was probably a Malay kampong for the Malay community in Singapore. Today, Kembangan is largely an upscale residential area in the eastern part of Singapore. It is sandwiched between Bedok and Geylang and is within the vicinity of the Katong area.

The residential neighbourhood of Kembangan consists mainly of private residential estates and high-rise condominium estates.
