Kranji is a suburb in northwestern Singapore, located about 22 kilometres (15 miles) from the city centre. It is know about to Wetland Reserve, Kranji Dam, the Turf Race Course, the Kranji War Memorial and as gateway to Johor Bahru in Malaysia.

Kranji served as a military camp before the Japanese invasion of Singapore in 1942, and is now the home of the Kranji War Cemetery and Kranji War Memorial, commemorating the 30,000 Commonwealth personnel who died in Singapore, Malaya, Java and Sumatra during World War II.

In addition, it is now a prime residential area comprising mostly stand-alone properties. There are no towering apartment blocks, unlike most suburbs of Singapore. It is also an industrial area.
