A Chinese billionaire, Lee Jinyuan, took 6,400 of his employees on a trip to France in order to celebrate 20th anniversary of his company. During this trip, they broke the record of making world’s longest human chain, perpetuating the moment by taking the “photograph of the millennium”
The chairman of the “Tiens Group Company” booked up 140 hotels in Paris, where his employees had the chance to visit the Louvre and other popular sites of the French capital.
Paris earned 13 million euros with the help of this group of tourists.
After Paris, Lee took his staff to the south of France.
At the Cote D’Azur he booked 4,760 rooms in four- and five-star hotels in Nice and Monaco.
Using 147 rented busses, Lee gathered his staff in Nice in order to form the world’s longest human chain, and to put themselves on the list of Guinness World Records.
Monaco, Nice and Cannes should earn about 20 million euros, thanks to this unusual trip of world’s best boss and his employees.

For the travel and accommodation of 6,400 of his employees, of which 5,400 come from China, the Chinese businessman had to book up 140 hotels and to buy 7,600 tickets. That was a real logistic feat.
