What is the best VPN for China?

When we search for VPN recommendations, it always gives us more than we need. We get overwhelmed by long lists of Top 10 VNP recommendations. The information below is based on my own experience. I hope you find it useful.

Why do we need a VPN? Which websites are blocked in mainland China?

Most well-known websites are blocked in China. Therefore, download a couple of VPNs (Virtual Private Network) apps to help you browse websites like back home.

Without a VPN, you will not be able to use Google, G-mail, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, WhatsApp, etc.

Recommendations VPN for mainland China? How many VPN do we need to download?

However, which VPN works better in China? There are lots of recommendations on Google. We might not like to download most of them. From my own experiences, I suggest ExpressVPN, which has one month free money-back guarantee. The second recommendation is Astrill VPN. It would be better to download two VPN apps in case one of them doesn’t work. Both these VPNs are reasonably stable and reliable. If they don’t work at first, you can try to connect different locations.

What can we do if we come to China during certain times? Which VPN can work?

No matter which VPN, they still don’t work during certain times, especially during any big events and international conferences. In my opinion, if you have to check messages or emails during those times, using a roaming service from your home country is always more reliable than any VPN.

Is it a good idea to download a free VPN?

I haven’t used free VPN so far. Generally speaking, we pay for what we get. It would be better to pay small money to ensure the safety of your personal information. Free VPNs are free for a reason and this often means your security is compromised.
