Individual and societal health, flourishing, and prosperity are all linked to well-being. Well-being is more than simply the absence of disease or illness. It is a complex interplay of physical, mental, emotional, and social health factors. Happiness and life satisfaction are strongly linked to well-being. Unfortunately, well-being looks to be declining, with rising conflicts adding to the pressure on cities, as more than half of the forcibly displaced people live in cities. Urban life peculiarity well-being (LPW) is complicated and multidimensional. A diverse set of urban well-being evaluation methods has been created around the world to measure and monitor the quality of urban life while taking into account the specific characteristics of cities/regions and the demands of their populations. This study is aimed to investigate the urban LPW among tourism industry workers in Malaysia. Data were collected from 35 tourism industry workers with various backgrounds by distributing questionnaires using a convenient sampling approach. The collected data of 35 were analysed by using the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) software. This finding calls for a better understanding of the urban LPW elements among the tourism industry workers in Malaysia. The study highlights the value of the created framework and comprehensive list of criteria as an organised and efficient method for developing better urban LPW assessment tools.
