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.
