Chinese tycoon hires 30 Phantoms for son’s wedding

BEIJING (TIP): A Chinese tycoon made headlines for hiring 30 Rolls-Royce Phantom cars for his son’s wedding and organizing a lavish dinner spending about a lakh of rupees per table amid the Communist nation’s crackdown against extravagance and hedonism. Chinese social media users were stunned by images of the lavish multimillion-yuan wedding of a mainland energy and real estate tycoon’s son showing a fleet of 30 Rolls-Royce Phantoms taking guests to the 9,999 yuan (about a lakh of rupees) per table, South China Morning Post reported.

Liu Baoli, a normally low-profile businessman from Hebei Province created national headlines after video and photographs of Sunday’s “most extravagant wedding”. Pictures posted online by spectators showed the newlyweds, Liu’s son Liu He and his bride, the daughter of a village chief driving to the wedding banquet in their bright red Ferrari followed by a fleet of luxury motorcycles. The tycoon spent more than 1 million yuan just on the 101-table banquet, staff at the hotel hosting the feast told the Huashang Daily newspaper. “The most expensive banquet on our menu is about 3,000 yuan per table,” one staff member said.
