Although it is possible that sometimes you need to use the obfuscated servers read this article , you can usually connect simply by doing the following:. So what follows is just our personal opinion:. The new regulation seems to only refer to VPN providers that operate from within China. Therefore, do so at your own risk. The list of websites blocked in China is long and changes every day.

Generally speaking, the most popular social networks Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, etc , blogging platforms WordPress. The most common example is probably Skype, which works on and off for calls, messages usually work fine. This is especially true after 8 PM Chinese time , as this corresponds to both American and European working times. This implies that the traffic in and out the Chinese network will be larger, and tends to saturate fairly often.

The best way to overcome this problem is, of course, to choose a VPN that is working well in China! A good VPN in one city or for a particular connection may have worse performance than in other circumstances.

During times when internet restrictions are intensified for example, party meetings, or at the beginning of Chinese New Year , some VPN hold up better than others. Thanks to our personal experience and the multiple comments from our readers, we can currently say that in general, ExpressVPN tends to offer the best services in terms of speed, stability and the best resistance to times of restriction. In January , its services were affected quite a bit, but it looks like it has been progressively improving.

Even so, if you choose the automatic connection option or play around with protocols and servers a bit, you can normally find a configuration that offers good services the best servers tend to be located in South Korea, Canada and the United States.

As for NordVPN, we have less experience using it, but it looks like during times when restrictions are intensified, it holds out better than other VPN with similar prices.

However, its performance is irregular at times and there may be days when it is difficult to connect or alternatively, when speeds are very good. Normally, NordVPN takes a long time to connect, but it tends to be quite stable once connected. In our experience, the Japan and Singapore obfuscated servers tend to give the best results.

For now its performance is excellent despite its reduced cost. However, it is a bit difficult to configure. The servers in Taiwan and South Korea tend to give the best results. Its main advantage is that if you manage to get it to connect, it tends to be quite stable.

In our experience, the server that works the best is Los Angeles Asia Optimized with the Stealth protocol. In the past, we also recommended PureVPN , but since August , during which there was an increase in VPN use restrictions, its functionality was seriously affected, making us decide to remove it from the list of the best VPN for China. Despite this, under normal conditions, its functionality is acceptable.

Another VPN that is quite popular in China, Astrill , has been a target of the Great Firewall over the past years, and because of this, it often stops working. This is one of the reasons why we no longer recommend it. With the increasingly widespread use of VPN in the past years, VPN service providers are constantly innovating to improve their services.

To put it simply, we can say that a VPN router is like connecting your VPN directly from the router in your house or office, and not from your computer or mobile device. This has a huge advantage, as you extend the VPN over the whole network and not just from specific devices, thus improving security and permitting all devices on the network to use the VPN regardless of the number of simultaneous connections.

You can also choose to configure your router manually. The routers compatible with ExpressVPN are the following: Although VyprVPN does not offer routers with pre-installed software, it does offer an application so that you can install it on your router. To do you, before anything else, you are going to have to install the Tomato firmware on your router You can click here to see the list of compatible routers and then the VyprVPN app.

Some of the permitted routers are the following: Sborto Zhou is a scientist working in Beijing that already visited half Asia and only thinks about his next trip. He's also the editor of the Spanish version of Sapore di Cina.

I think enough emphasis cannot be made over the fact how a VPN can easily help circumvent geo restrictions, hide your IP and unblock any website in any country. Guys, you should check smaller VPNs too. Some of your picks did not work for me and some worked like a slow slow slooow torture. I just hope that they will add more countries as options around the region some time soon. Two months ago I went on vacation to China, and just before my trip got a one-month Nordvpn subscription thinking I am only going to need it for this trip, but recently extended to another two-year plan.

My resume is that using VPN is a good practice for your safety and anonymity which is increasingly vulnerable nowadays. I personally recommend ExpressVPN. That is pathetic, so many things are being taken away from Chinese citizens.

I know from my personal experience when traveled in China, a reliance on Google or any other services in China for a someone visiting China like me is a big problem, but there is a solution to a problem, and that is Nordvpn. Highly recommend to travelers or to someone concerned about security! Your email address will not be published.
