Serdang, now known as Seri Kembangan, is a town in the Malaysian state of Selangor. The town has grown to be a sizable city. It’s near the PLUS Expressway’s Southern Route’s northern terminus.
Seri Kembangan was founded as the Serdang New Village in 1950, when the British relocated Malaysian Chinese peasants from Sungai Besi to a central site as part of the Briggs Plan in response to the Communist threat during the Malayan Emergency.
The village had 50 dwellings in its early days, all of which were built from the ground up because the British only provided vacant pieces of land. The area was close to rubber plantations, and the jungle provided a new kind of threat. The majority of the 15,000 residents were low-wage miners and rubber tappers.
Seri Kembangan New Village was once known for cottage industries such as shoemaking and typesetting services, but these have since been surpassed by more lucrative ventures.
Following the 1998 Commonwealth Games, major improvements began in the year 2000, with AEON Equine Park, McDonald’s, Pasar Borong Selangor (wholesale market), Maybank, Giant Hypermarket, and other enterprises transforming the area into a business hub.
Seri Kembangan has a tropical rainforest climate (Köppen climate classification Af) that is warm and sunny, with abundant rainfall, especially during the northeast monsoon season from October to March, which is protected by the Titiwangsa Mountains in the east and Indonesia’s Sumatra Island in the west. Temperatures have a tendency to stay consistent. Maximum temperatures range between 31 and 33 degrees Celsius (88 and 91 degrees Fahrenheit) and have never exceeded 39.3 degrees Celsius (102.7 degrees Fahrenheit), while minimum temperatures range between 22 and 23.5 degrees Celsius (71.6 and 74.3 degrees Fahrenheit) and have never dropped below 14.4 degrees Celsius (57.9 degrees Fahrenheit). Seri Kembangan receives a minimum of 2,600 mm (100 in) of rain every year; the months of June and July are comparatively dry, but rainfall still exceeds 133 mm (5.2 in) per month.
Seri Kembangan is part of the Puchong parliamentary seat, which is presently represented by DAP’s Gobind Singh Deo.  Meanwhile, Seri Kembangan is represented in the Selangor State Legislative Assembly with its own constituency. Ean Yong Hian Wah, a member of the DAP, is the current assemblyperson.  It was previously known as Damansara Constituency from 1959 to 1964, before being renamed Serdang and then Puchong Constituency. Karam Singh Veriah of the Socialist Front was the first MP, winning the Damansara Constituency twice.
Seri Kembangan has three major malls: the aforementioned The Mines Shopping Mall, an AEON store in Taman Equine, Giant Hypermarket, and South City Plaza.
Seri Kembangan is recognised for its delicious and diverse street food, which combines elements from Chinese, Malay, Indian, and other races in a literal melting pot. Seri Kembangan Night Market and Seri Serdang Night Market are two of the best venues to try street food (opens every Monday and Friday nights). Nasi lemak, asam laksa, char kway teow, curry noodle, mamak fried mee, rojak, and cendol are some of the most popular local foods.
Seri Kembangan’s primary rail station is KB05 KTM Serdang, which is part of the KTM Komuter network managed by state railway operator KTMB.
Alternatively, the SP16 Sungai Besi LRT Station is about 4 kilometers north. According to reports, under the KVMRT2 project, a new MRT station will be built here.
In terms of residential properties, the area is home to multiple landed and non-landed properties. It offers properties in the form of residential towers as well as half detached bungalows and terrace houses. It also has a number of condos that are up for grabs.
