Abstract

This article analyzes how well-being is associated with geographical context, social contacts, and life circumstances in Hong Kong. First, it finds that life satisfaction is associated more strongly with geographical context than is momentary well-being. Second, it confirms positive relations between social contacts and experienced well-being but extend earlier research by showing that these relations stretch across multiple timescales and depend to some extent on the duration of an activity episode and with whom the activity episode is undertaken
