700,000 Heures (700,000 hours), explores a new destination and hotel every six months. It is the brainchild of French hotelier Thierry Teyssier who says: “It’s time to invent a new way to discover the world, which is more authentically connected to people and cultures, more enriching and more humane for all.”
The first hotel in this project opened in Puglia, Italy in September and will be closed by the end of October. The next destination is Cambodia from November 2018 to April 2019. Each hotel will offer a unique experience inspired by the destination.
