An Expat Talks about Living in Khamis Mushayt, Saudi Arabia

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Khamis Mushayt

How long have you lived there?

5 years

What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?

There are a wide variety of things to do from bowling to scubadiving, computerclubs to western style party establishments.

William Russell's private medical insurance will cover you and your family wherever you may be. Whether you need primary care or complex surgery, you'll have access to the best hospitals & doctors available. Unlike some insurers, we also include medical evacuation and mental health cover in our plans (except SilverLite). Get a quote from our partner, William Russell.

In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

When first in transit to Khamis Mushayt I was told by Saudi customs that this town is also known as Khamis Mistake. Compared to the main cities like Daharan, Jeddah and Riyadh, Khamis is somewhat "behind" in time, not as developed and not so rich.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Tourism (many Saudis spend their summer here, for the weather is very mild compared to the rest of the country), argiculture, defense contracts.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Family life is really important but so are sports and socializing, to keep your sanity.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

Be open minded, expect little, and keep in mind what you're here for; be it the money or quality family time.
