A Chinese boss has taken 6,400 of his staff on a four day holiday to France that finished with a world-record breaking human chain in the Cote D’Azur.
Tiens Group Company Chairman Li Jinyuan, 57, who is featured on the Forbes list of billionaires, booked 4760 rooms in 79 four- and five-star hotels in Cannes and Monaco, in addition to 146 buses, for his employees, News.com.au reported.
After some sightseeing, the employees arranged themselves on the Promenade des Anglais in the southern resort town of Nice to spell out the phrase “Tiens’ dream is Nice in the Cote d’Azur.”
Guinness World Records inspectors declared that the visitors from China had created the longest human-made phrase visible from the sky.
The mass trip to France, and the record-breaking stunt in Nice, were organised to mark 20 years of the Tiens business conglomerate, which operates in a variety of sectors from biotechnology to tourism.
