Saudi king takes 506 tons of luggage on Indonesian tripThe king of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdul Aziz, is traveling to Indonesia this week and everybody can say he goes well-prepared. King Salman is visiting the country along with 506 tons of cargo, an amount that roughly estimates to 240 elephants or 300 cars.

Saudi Arabia's King is heading to Indonesia for a nine-day visit. It will be the first time in 46 years that a Saudi king has visited the world's largest Muslim nation, and it comes at a time of heightened attention on the economic links between the two nations.

The Saudi royal is expected to bring a huge cargo with him on his trip — including two Mercedes-Benz S600 limousines and two electric elevators.

Adji Gunawan of the airfreight company PT Jasa Angkasa Semesta (JAS) said that his company was appointed to handle the cargo, which has already arrived in the country. Adji said his company was employing a total of 572 workers to deal with the Saudi king's luggage.

The Saudi king is also taking a massive entourage on the nine-day trip. According to The Jakarta Post, around 1,500 people will accompany him on the journey, including 10 ministers, 25 princes, and at least 100 security personnel.

King Salman's trip to Indonesia comes as the economic relationship between the country and Saudi Arabia takes on renewed significance. The royal will also travel to Japan, China, the Maldives, and Jordan.

Saudi royals are often known for traveling in grandiose style. Salman booked the entire Four Seasons hotel in Georgetown when he visited Washington in 2015. The hotel, one of the most luxurious in the area, has 222 rooms.
