VPN For China
Before travelling to Shanghai you should have a VPN set up so you can access the internet immediately. The Great Firewall of China blocks sites like Facebook and Gmail, so a VPN is essential to be able to access your everyday life on the internet. The best VPNs for China tend to change regularly, as the government is continually trying to block these services. Rather than recommend a service, it’s best to check an updated list of VPNs that work in China.
