Who needs a holiday bonus when you can have a free trip to Europe?
More than 6,000 employees of the Chinese corporation Tiens Group were taken on an all-expenses-paid vacation to France and Monaco by their founder and chairman, Li Jinyuan, last week. The massive getaway was in celebration of the company’s 20th anniversary, which the group celebrated with a four-day stay in Paris, the French Riviera and Monaco, CNN reports.
“We have have mobilized public services as well as tourism professionals, hotels, restaurants, shops and designer brands,” Christian Mantel, head of tourism development agency Atout France, told AFP last week.
While in Nice, the employees set out to break a Guinness World Record for the longest human sentence, by lining up along the Promenade des Anglais and spelling out "Tiens' Dream Is Nice in the Côte d'Azur."

This entire free vacay sounds pretty nice, too.
