Phnom Penh is one of the least-livable cities in the world, but has also seen relatively strong improvement in quality of life over the past five years, the Economist Intelligence Unit’s annual Global Livability Ranking released this month has found. The analysis of 140 cities, which considers factors of stability, health care, culture and environment, education and infrastructure, ranked the capital the world’s 126th most livable metropolis. With a score of 51.4 out of a possible 100, Phnom Penh fared somewhat better than last-place finishers Damascus and Dhaka, but also trailed far behind top-ranked Mel*bourne, Vienna and Vancouver.
