The Eastern Province city of Alkhobar, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is set to enter the Guinness Book of World Records with the creation of the longest breakfast table.
The table, said to measure 175 metres in length and 122 cm in width, has been arranged along the Al Khobar Corniche, popularly known as Waajihat Alkhobar.
“The table will accommodate nearly 600 people, beating the world’s longest breakfast table record achieved in the Netherlands,” said organiser Helda Shehab.
Hundreds of people are expected to take part, and is open to everyone. The Guinness team will also be present to confirm the record.
Shehab said Alkhobar has been chosen with a view to putting it on the world map and promoting its potential for tourism. “Alkhobar is already a tourist attraction and this record will solidify its image in the eyes of the global tourists,” she added.
