Chinese Billionaire Takes 6,400 Employees On An Epic Trip To France
A Chinese billionaire took more than half of his 12,000 workers on an all-expenses-paid trip to France for four days.
Led by 57-year-old billionaire Li Jinyuan, Tiens Group is described as an international conglomerate involved in biotechnology, health management, tourism and e-commerce, in addition to various other fields.
According to Daily Mail, approximately 6,400 employees of Tiens Group were treated to luxury hotels in Paris, Monaco, Cannes and Nice as the company celebrated its 20th anniversary last week.
The workers were given private tours of The Louvre, an exclusive shopping spree at a high-end department store and even got to see the legendary cabaret show Moulin Rouge.
The billionaire booked a total of 140 hotels in Paris and rented 4,760 hotel rooms and 146 tour buses in Monaco and Cannes, CNN reports.
Allegedly, Tiens Group spent about $15 million throughout the trip, making France an estimated $20 million richer.
The workers even donned identical blue shirts in Nice to break the Guinness World Record for the largest human sentence.
They spelled out "'Tiens' dream is Nice in the Cote d'Azur" in the southern resort town on Friday.
The tour group was the largest to visit France in history, but according to CNN, another Chinese company took 7,000 of its workers to America last year to commemorate 35 years of partnership with the US.
