Near 7 000 employees of Tiens Group, a Chinese conglomerate, were sent to France to celebrate the company’s 20th birthday. All expenses of the VIP tour were covered by the company.

It was the largest tourist group in the history of France. The half of a four-day trip, the Chinese employees spent in Paris, where they were given a private tour of the Louvre museum and a private shopping session at luxury department store Galeries Lafayette.

During their trip, the group also broke a Guinness World Record for forming the largest human sentence. It took place in Nice, where they headed down after two days in Paris.2877BB8800000578-0-image-a-5_1431166509021

All 6 400 staff members lined up on the Promenade des Anglais, waterfront of the southern Nice resort town, to build a sentence that was seen from above. So, they spelled out the phrase “Tiens’ dream is nice in the Côte d’Azur” .

He also added that the total income for France is estimated to be approximately $20 million, since Chinese tourists are known as the world’s biggest holiday spenders. The Chinese are said to spend an average of $7,200 while travelling overseas.

Despite its exclusiveness, Tiens Group, which operates in a diverse range of business interests, including biotechnology, tourism and trade, wasn’t the first Chinese company that had arranged massive tour overseas. A trip to the US was made last year with a group of 7 000 people to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Sino-U.S. diplomatic ties.
