A six-meter-long path tiled with 60 million yuan’s worth of gold created buzz in Wenxing Township of southwest China’s Sichuan Province Friday.
A newly-opened retail store of the Gold Dragon Jewelry Corporation in Wenxing built the path with 192 gold bars, each of which weights one kilograms. Based on recent gold prices, total value of the path exceeds 60 million yuan.
According to the store’s salesperson, the path carries a variety of meanings including blessing, good fortune, longevity, and happiness. “Whoever steps on this path will be blessed to have a promising future,” he said.
The gold path attracted both admirers who lined up to experience the feeling of walking on tens of millions, and buyers who were still reveling in the recent tumble of gold prices.
