400 ons of luggage

(Web deq) – It is generally believed the lighter you travel, the better it is.

But for the monarchs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, that apparently is not the case.

According to reports by the British media, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, on his three-day trip to Moscow, has taken with him hundreds of kilograms of food items, two luxury Mercedes cars, his favourite carpet, and even his private escalators made of gold.

Not just this but the king is accompanied by 1500 members of staff, out of which 150 are royal chefs.

While the total weight of King Salman’s luggage is estimated to be almost 400 tons, the 81-year-old Saudi monarch has reserved two hotels in Russia, which reports claim will cost him around 3 million dollars.
