This Chinese Entrepreneur Just Bought A Private Island…For Luxury Hunting

Though more than half of the world’s self-made female billionaires are Chinese, it’s clear that the culture in China is still a manly-man’s world. A Chinese entrepreneur just bought an entire island, which he’s planning to use as a hunting reserve.
Grab your pistols.
Or don’t. Huang Yimin has already spent $5 million preparing the island with rifles and animals — wild boar, pheasants and deer. On top of that, he’s paid $529,000 to operate a tourist reserve for the next 50 years.
Though Danmemshan Island will cater to the rich, it won’t cost too much to rent a rifle — just around $15 and about $19 to get onto the island. Plus another dollar or two for every bullet. It could add up. It’ll probably cost a lot to get to the macho island, though, a remote spot off the coast of China. It’s not too far from Shanghai.
Huang’s funding the project with the fortune he made in petrochemicals and it would appear he’s trying to make another fortune by tapping into China’s burgeoning hunting market. Over the past few years, over 200 hunting clubs have reportedly opened in China.
