China Series: VPN that worked for me

Greetings~!

I'm back with another post on the China Series. I thought I should update on this since I'm leaving China real soon. So, which VPN worked for me?

On my Mac, I'm using ExpressVPN which you can find here: https://www.expressvpn.com/

Pros:
Works really well
Fast
Can be used on 3 devices

Cons:
Expensive
Doesn't work well if you select some locations


Meanwhile I'm using Psiphon on my phone. 

Pros:
Free

Cons:
Disconnects automatically after few minutes (For some reason, you have reconnect all the time)
Only available for android & windows (Can't download it on my Mac)
Doesn't work when you connect to public WiFi (I'm not sure why but this happens when I try to connect to the VPN while in cafes)


This is a very simple & short post about VPNs. I've tried a few others but they don't work as well as these two. Give them a try. If you're not staying in China & you're only here on a holiday, I suggest you just get Psiphon especially if you're not an iPhone user. It's the best solution. 

Also, try downloading all these VPNs before you come to China since most sites for VPNs are actually blocked. So, you can't even buy them even if you want to. 


That's it for this post.

Let me know if you want to know anything else. 

In the next post of this series, I will likely talk about how to ship things back to Malaysia at an affordable price. Stay tuned for that!
