Your corporate offsite is going to pale in comparison to what Chinese billionaire Li Jinyuan did for over 6400 of his employees: He took them on a four day paid-vacation to France.
Jinyuan is the owner of Tiens Group Company in China which deals with bio-technology to e-commerce and according to DailyMail nearly half of his workforce was taken to France at the cost of 33 million euros.
A total of 4700 rooms in 140 four and five star hotels across France were booked and the staff was taken to Eiffel Tower, given a private tour of Louvre museum, and even taken for a private show at the famous Moulin Rouge hotel.
But the fun did not stop at Paris. According to another report on Telegraph.co.uk, the staff was also taken to the Promenade des Anglais in Nice (South of France), where they formed the words “Tiens dream is Nice in the Cote d’Azur” and set the record for the longest human made phrase.
In addition, the staff were also taken to Monaco and Cannes and nearly 30,000 hotel rooms were booked for the same.
So why the trip? It was to mark 20 years of partnership between Tiens and the French region. Li Jinyuan has been ranked as the 24th richest person in China by Forbes with an estimated wealth of $1.2 billion. His tour group is now the largest ever to have visited France as well.
