Vietnam doesn’t have Facebook, but they do have Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. He’s vacationing in the communist country, where the social-networking site is blocked by local Communist authorities.
Zuckerberg and his girlfriend Priscilla Chan spent Christmas Eve in the popular tourist destination Ha Long Bay, local official Trinh Dang Thanh says. The couple spent Christmas Day at an ecolodge in the northern mountain town of Sapa and rode a buffalo, said Le Phuc Thien, deputy manager at Topas Ecolodge (Click here to see pictures of the Topas Ecolodge resort in Sapa, Vietnam).
They were seen visiting the Hoa Lo Prison Museum, known as the ‘Hanoi Hilton’ where American prisoners of war were held during the Vietnam War. Also, Zuckerberg and an entourage of eight people hired the Phoenix cruise ship and left the mainland at around 11:30 p.m. to cruise Bo Nau and Sung Sot caves in Ha Long Bay. Zuck’s meals included:
Grilled Fillet With Coconut With Barbecue Sauce
Fried Tofu With Tomato Sauce
