Have you tried the Shadowsocks method or the OpenVPN method in the above article?

Yes ExpressVPN is better than Surfshark in China. The above author ranks it the top VPN in China. But take note even ExpressVPN may not work in China from time to time. It is said that even plain Shadowsocks server is being recognized and blocked in China now.

As per the other poster, Astrill VPN may still be better in China. 12VPN is another option.

Surfshark is one of the best VPN deals that you will find anywhere.

Get Surfshark for only $1.99/month

But the question you may want to know is: Does Surfshark VPN work in China?

Yes, Surfshark does work in China. In fact, it is currently rated #2 on the Best VPN for China page.

However, it can be very tricky to set up.

If you are looking for a more user-friendly VPN to use in China, ExpressVPN is a better choice. The apps are always working in China and they are easy to use.

The main problem with Surfshark is that the apps don't usually work in China, so you will likely need to set up manual connections. And don't expect too much help from Surfshark support (it's about as good as you can expect from a VPN that charges under $2/month).

But don't worry, I'm going to show you everything you need to know about how to use Surfshark in China with manual OpenVPN and Shadowsocks connections.

The Surfshark apps may or may not be working in China at the time you are reading this guide, so you could always try them first before following these steps.

ExpressVPN Works well when connected but it will lose connectivity randomly as well

This website has some interesting info as well. It has testing data for a few VPNs, including ExpressVPN, NordVPN, Surfshark, IVacy and purevpn.

如果使用正规VPN厂商的产品,出现无法正常连接翻墙的时候,不要着急,这很正常。请第一时间先去检查你所使用的版本是否为最新的,也可以查阅本站的“VPN连接问题”栏目,最重要的还是要第一时间联系VPN的官方客服。购买正规VPN好处不止在于安全,你还能得到强有力的售后保障。请永远也不要相信,拥有一款VPN之后就可以一劳永逸,那是不可能的,因为你身处中国,一个神奇的国度。

Still in China the better solution is to use SS+plugins, V2Ray or Wireguard, etc.

Now even plain SS servers are said to be easily blocked. So people are using different plugins to bypass the more and more capable GFW now.

I will visit China from next Monday onwards for one week. So I will put purevpn (app and openvpn) and some free SS servers for testing.

If I can bypass GFW (hopefully I can), I will test whether the SG servers can use Toggle, SingTel TV Go and SingTel Cast.

I do not have high hopes for purevpn though. So I have a few backup solution as well. But this time I will try without Starhub prepaid card data roaming which is the sure working solution for short term visit.

Dec 2017 China visit: SingTel data roaming + company VPN on laptop. Both were working.

Dec 2018 China visit: Starhub prepaid card data roaming (working), Seed4Me one year free (sometimes working), free SS servers (some servers working). Bought the Shadowrocket client for my iPhone 6S. Used official SS client on Huawei P20.

Dec 2019 China visit: purevpn paid version, free SS servers, to be tested.

Thanks. So Singtel Cast is not blocked in China. Interesting. It is blocked in some other countries as per the reports.
