This study explored the links between diaspora tourism and SWB (subjective well-being) through the lens of eudaimonia and identified six themes through which this highly nuanced travel behaviour strengthens tourists’ SWB. Within the diaspora tourism context, the linkages between SWB and tourism can be rich and insightful considering important themes of personal growth, self/ancestral acceptance, interested in further exploration, feel related and connected, capability to return, and meaning in life. This research note recommends further in-depth studies on SWB and tourism by combining both hedonic and eudaimonic views.
