People of Kos

There are 24,000 inhabitants in Kos. Most of the inhabitants now work in the tourist industry which to some extent has replaced the work of agriculture as the main type of employment.. Only a few areas retain their traditional occupation of agriculture and farming. These socio-economic changes have changed a once wholly rural society into an urban-tourist one. The island has a reputation since ancient times for its hospitality and because of its location and port the people have developed an open and welcoming attitude towards visitors.
