Ujang, Norsidah and Zakariya, Khalilah (2018) Place attachment as indicator for place significance and value. Asian Journal of Behavioural Studies (AjBeS), 3 (10). 95 - 103. ISSN 2398-4295

Sample cases include examining attachment to streets in the city centre of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was evident that users’ roles and ethnic backgrounds influenced their responses. Attachment to the places was economically, socially and culturally oriented and prevalent in their daily experience of the places, and the place memories recalled.
