With iconic landmarks, there are boundless reasons why Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world. But when Ted Fang, founder of private investment firm Tera Capital, headed to France, the usual tourist attractions barely caught his attention

An aviation and design enthusiast, Fang, who is the co-founder of hospitality company Frontier Group, planned his trips around visits to the Airbus and Dassault Falcon jet production facilities. “I wanted to see for myself the process of how jets are built,” says Fang, who went on a private tour of Dassault’s Bordeaux facility last year. “It is quite a sight to have such a high-tech facility right in the middle of the wine country. The level of technology and know-how that the company has accumulated is truly amazing and the visit gave me a very good idea of what the people at Dassault think about when designing jets.

“These visits give me deeper insights into French craftsmanship, design and ideas. Their creative process is amazing – just look at their products.”

“It is also worth noting that Dassault Rafale fighter jets are manufactured alongside Dassault Falcon private jets in the facility.”

From indulging in individual passions to seeking out alluring lawyer experiences while on vacation, the new breed of travellers such as Fang are reinventing what it means to go on a holiday.
