How to use VPN in China?
 
Will be gng to Guangzhou China for work for a week soon. Intending to subscribe a VPN service to still access FB and use WhatsApp.
Not gng to get a China sim card because my Singtel plan has sufficient roaming. Understand that Singtel uses China Mobile as it's partner telecom. If I sign up a VPN service does it make a difference if I use Singtel roaming there or will it work better if I get a China sim card and use the VPN?

If roaming on singtel sim card I don't think you will be affected by their great firewall

In my experience, TorGuard sometimes still can get through.
Heard news recently that this may no longer be the case tho.
May well be that you need to set up a private VPN to your home network to circumvent IP based blocks.

If I use a VPN like this, would it work if I use singtel roaming in china or must use china sim card?

It doesn't matter what sim card you are using. I am using the VPN now in China.

Roaming = not blocked by great firewall.

If you want vpn, express vpn works somewhat.

Shadowsocks works the best but you need some tech know how to set up your own server. Or you can buy plans from some companies.
