Vietnam: No Facebook, yes Zuckerberg

Hanoi - Vietnam may block its citizens from using Facebook, but that didn't stop website founder Mark Zuckerberg from spending his vacation in the communist country.

Zuckerberg spent Christmas Eve in the popular tourist destination Ha Long Bay, local official Trinh Dang Thanh says.

State-run media say Zuckerberg arrived in Vietnam on December 22.

Zuckerberg 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.

Zuckerberg, Facebook's 27-year-old CEO, founded the popular social networking site in 2004.

Vietnam's aggressive internet censors block access to Facebook and other websites, but young Vietnamese easily bypass the restrictions.

      Don't forget that they and other primitive cultures like Thailand skin snakes alive for their skin. Hoping nature will strike soon with unforgiving vengeance.

      Obviously you have never been to Vietnam and so by the way Ha Long Bay is one of the nicest and most beautiful places on earth! Why would anyone come to South Africa where 'savages' rape young virgin girls in the believe that they will be cured from aids? You are a idiot !
