Good VPN

Dear everyone, I will be relocating to Beijing in mid August and wondering which VPN is good in order for me to access to WhatsApp and FB. Your advice would be greatly appreciated!  :)

Hi Explorerfrommalaysia, :D

I suggest you to visit Connecting to the internet in China where you might find some information on the subject.

Good luck.

Enjoy your trip!  :top:

I've had great results with vpnbaron recently in mainland china

Thank you for the info Christoph, will try that! 🙂

Awesome thank you Anas! 🙂

People recommended Express VPN but it's terrible. I'm from an IT background and recommend Nord VPN.

I use NordVPN too. I am quite happy about their service, but I used Surfshark during my holidays at Beijing as they are quite new, so servers are not blocked yet so I could easily use Netflix and all social media. If someone is planning the trip there my friend shared promo code: SURF2YDEAL it should still work I guess ;)

Purevpn is also a great option, Its servers work great in Beijing also there streaming, and internet speed is fantastic, which can be a plus point for you as you want to access social sites. If you want to test it, You can also take its 3 days trial. [link moderated]

Thanks guys! :) Appreciate the information!

Welcome :)

hei there! - I have a good solution for you, if you are still on this thread/forum..

Please get back to me if interested! :)

Hello Jack, how's life China so far? Hope all is well!
I am using expressvpn and recently I have been encountering frequent disconnection...Got the email update from VPN team and they are working on the issues now, hopefully they will get this fixed soon, without VPN I am like losing connection to the outside world lol. Which VPN are you using?

hei Explorer :)
                            Thanks for your response. I guess i can say i'm an old-timer in China as i've been there over 7 years (though i'm back in Australia for now). Most things about living in China are quite reasonable and even nice -eg. friendly people, cheap cost of living, etc but access to the outside world via the net has always been a challenge...until now! I have been using Betternet on my smart phone as my latest vpn which is usually quite useable, and free too, however this latest tech i referred to has been given a top-level rating by my good old friend over there who has been using it with great success for months! - quite simply, it is a USB drive sized device with a 3-year VPN service already installed in it - all ready to go after you plug it in to your laptop and take a minute to configure it. It can be used in any wifi area. We are keeping the source a secret for now, and the price i am asking for it is just 430RMB with free postage inside of China - you can't beat this price as i've already done the research and its commercial price out there is much more than this. You can pay via Wechat or Alipay and delivery directly from the supplier will be done within days. If this interests you, please message me again or we could talk on Wechat next time,  Cheers!  :)
Jack
