Billionaire Li Jinyuan (57) footed the bill for staff of his entire firm Tiens to jet to Nice to attempt to break a Guinness World Record to create the longest human chain.

The employees were ferried to France in 84 planes as their boss booked out more than 149 hotels in Paris and reserved 4,760 rooms in 79 of the most luxurious hotels in Cannes and Monaco for the lucky workers.

The hotels chosen by the billionaire were four-stars with top dogs of the company residing in even more pricey digs.

The top boss booked out the entirety of Paris’ luxury department store Galeries Lafayette so that his company staff could browse the aisles at their leisure and threw a parade in Nice in their honour.

The lucky employees were also treated to a Moulin Rouge show at the Palais Nikaia and had the Louvre to themselves for an entire day.
