Urban Voice conducted a short survey over the course of a month (from July 1 to July 31) on the following topic: “What do you like most in the city?” Participants were given many choices such as: university, supermarket, green parks, skyscrapers, and others. A month later, we collected 66 votes with the results bellow:
- Historical Site: 18 votes
- Universities: 17 votes
- Green Park: 17 votes
- Supermarkets: 8 votes
- Skyscrapers: 3 votes
- Others: 3 votes
According to these results, we learned that Phnom Penh residents believe that historical sites are very important to them and are also very popular tourist destinations. Therefore, related institutions should take this into account and work towards the conservation and protection of the historical sites in Phnom Penh.
Universities and green parks were also popular choices. People need green parks and universities in the city. In Phnom Penh, there are not enough green parks to adequately serve the growing population and so the government should take this into consideration as well.
