Before Visiting To China

Hello Everyone! Before 7 November I will go to Guangzhou city of China for one month also attend Itzhak Perlman Events on 7 November. Anyhow, my query is the restriction of many social and other websites in China. I don't want to Live like prisoners. Before my visiting, I want to know which VPN is working in China. How can I get VPN for one month is there any possibility? Please Help me out I don't want to take the risk to use free VPN.

If you're staying at a major international hotel, you're likely to be able to use the internet without restrictions; this is not true in more local hotels. However, some of the international TV stations such as CNN tend IME to have difficulties with reception from time to time, even in rooms occupied by foreigners in major international hotels. YMMV.

ExpressVPN is fairly reliable and even has servers that accommodate Netflix.

If you cancel it within thirty days of subscribing, you will receive a full refund.

Hello, onuhistorian0116, Thanks for your Suggestion but I don't want to deceive anyone if I cancel the subscription after using VPN what explanation I give them. Well, its little bit expensive. I did little research on some VPNs on google. Is there any other VPN working in China from the list within this article. https://reviewsdir.com/best-china-vpn/ Maybe it would be useful for me and I I'll never need to unsubscribe.

You could also just get a one month subscription to Express VPN. It is $12.95 for one month. If you feel that it is important you have access to Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Netflix (unlike many VPNs, Express has dedicated servers for Netflix), New York Times, etc while you are in China, and it is important enough to pay for it, you mightaswell pay a few dollars more for a VPN that works well.

While Express isn’t quite “bullet proof” as their add campaign claims, they are quite reliable. I have used Express since I first came to China in 2013, and am not looking to make a change.

I think that has changed. Stayed at Andaz, didn't get internet without restrictions.

Did you stay during the Party Congress?

It really depends on whether they decide to pay for a VPN. I am more of a hostel guy myself, and I stayed at a hostel in Kunming that had VPN services.

That may not be true any longer. I was in GZ last month for the Canton Fair, I stay at a Marriott where I always had access to everything. Not this time. Spoke to the sale manager at the property, who I have met before. He said that due to the Party Congress, their VPN had been shut off for 3 months, and there was no word on if and when it would go back on.

Only a handful of VPNs work in China at the moment, and all of them offer a 1 month subscription. You can see reviews of VPNs for China here: Jump the Great Firewall
