Paul Biya, Chantal Biya and members of their entourage holidayed in La Baule, a vast playground of the rich and famous which claims to meet your every expectation.

Situated in the heart of the Côte d'Amour on a magnificent bay, the seaside resort warmly welcomes visitors all year round and invites you to share its art of living wholeheartedly.

The region and its residents are used to playing host to VIP's which usually consists of very wealthy individuals and heads of states and Paul Biya was no exception.

After receiving a heartfelt welcome from the mayor of the town, Popol and Chantou with the 15 members of their delegation checked themselves into the above luxury 5 star, 43 bedroomed Hotel at a cost of EUR 42,000 per day and nearly EUR 1,000,000 for their 3 weeks stay. According to one website, this is even more than Sarkozy, Bush and Obama's holiday expenses put together.

Now, what do you think about this when there are people in Cameroon who work but don't get paid? How does Paul Biya justify spending nearly £ 1,000,000 on holiday and this is just on accommodation?
