When the king Tut box arrived in the Philippine capital, Manila, on Saturday, the crowd at the King’s Tut box had a different idea of what to expect.
They wanted to smoke a hookah!
The hookah cafe owner was shocked to see thousands of people queueing outside the box, which arrived at a mall that was packed with visitors.
“This is the most extraordinary thing.
It’s the most wonderful thing that has ever happened in Manila,” said Antonio Bautista, a Filipino hookah addict who is also a member of the Kings Tut.
The Kings Tract was unveiled in January by King Salman and the Sultan of Brunei, Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
It is an elaborate and unique collection of items, including the crown, a sword, a dagger, a golden helmet, and a box filled with the relics of the king.
The King’s Tract is the third of its kind in the Middle East.
The other two are the King James Bible and the Koran.
King Salman is the son of King Faisal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and has been Saudi Arabia’s crown prince since 2016.
