A Chinese boss took 6,400 staffers on a four day holiday to France, which finished with a world-record breaking human-made phrase visible from the sky.

Tiens Group Company Chairman Li Jinyuan, 57, who is featured in the Forbes list of billionaires, booked 4,760 rooms in 79 four and five star hotels in Cannes and Monaco, in addition to 146 buses, for his employees, reported.

After sightseeing, the employees arranged themselves on the Promenade des Anglais in the southern resort town of Nice to spell out the phrase "Tiens' dream is Nice in the Cote d'Azur."

Guinness World Records inspectors declared that the visitors from China had created the longest human-made phrase visible from the sky.

The trip to France, and the record-breaking stunt in Nice, was organised to mark 20 years of the Tiens business conglomerate, which operates in a variety of sectors from biotechnology to tourism.
