Internet Browsing in China

As you may well know, you can't access all the websites you probably want to in China. Here are just a few recommendations we have to help you easily access your social media, video and email sites abroad.    

1. Getcocoon.com is a free browser we often use.

Just download that to your laptop before you leave (make sure you get the "Asia" version though). Then you can use the internet like you would back home. It is just like using safari/chrome/firefox but it isn't blocked.

Right now it is only for desktop/laptops, but they are coming out with apps for phones soon. It is free though, so if you are just looking for good gmail/facebook/youtube access from your laptop, this is a pretty good option.

 

 

 

 

2.Astrill VPN is one of the most used in China. It is one of the few left that still works well and is reliable. You can use this on your phone/tablet/laptop too.  

 

 

 

 

3. Like Astrill, Express VPN is better known outside of China and they have more choices. Much the same product as Astrill but a slightly easier to use interface. Also available on phone/tablet/laptop. If you just want to sign up for a month or two it works out a little cheaper than Astrill.
