Updated info on internet access in China

Jump to last reply

I'm leaving for China in September, and wondering if I should bother tracking down a reliable VPN or proxy before I go. I will want to access only my email (comcast.net) and blog (blogger.com). Facebook would be nice, but not worth setting up a VPN for, I don't think. I'll be in Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu and Shanghai. I used a China Firewall Test site at bestvpnservice.com and it indicated that the sites I mention (not FB) are accessible through the Great Firewall.

If I were to go the VPN route, I'm looking at SurfBouncer and IAPS.

Any thoughts/advice?
