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

We have people of various religions and faiths. But, in Kuwait Tradition and Customs are equally important. People here are becoming more accepting of non-Kuwaiti traditions e.g. women smoking in public, wearing shorts or revealing much of their body. Women don't cover head to toe here, but wearing very provocative clothes is still a bit taboo. Don't be offended when people stare at you. Everyone here stares; it's more like a sport. You'd think your fly is open or you spilled tomato sauce on your shirt. But, they are just practicing their hobby. If you go to a mall you will spot boys with spiky hair, a woman showing only her eyes, guys with baggy pants, ladies in mini skirts, girls wearing the head cover with full makeup, a guy wearing a T-shirt with Che Guevara. The crowds will vary from singles, teens, families, kids, etc. I guess you get the idea.

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

I can't say much in that area

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

family...family..family..then family and lots of socializing. Sports is also popular. Kuwaities also like to shop, dine out and hand out at cafes.

Learn about the religion and traditions because you could easily offend someone or be offended. Check if your necessities are available in Kuwait e.g. certain products, books, food.
