February 18th, 2015: As you know, in recent months the Chinese government has become increasingly draconian in controlling the Chinese Internet.

We've searched far and wide and tried every VPN provider out there, including Astrill, StrongVPN, VyprVPN, and more. As of now, our understanding based on chatter from China VPN users is that ExpressVPN is the only one that consistently performs well in different regions in China.

Therefore, we continue to recommend it as the best VPN for China. So does this China user:

And with that: Happy Lunar New Year, everybody! Hopefully in the Year of the Ram the GFW situation in China will get better.

Happy New Year everybody!

More love for ExpressVPN from customers in the last week via Twitter:

January 29th, 2015:
With the recent blockages of several popular VPN providers, several ExpressVPN users chimed in on Twitter and Facebook about how they're still "punching through the Firewall."

January 10 2015
As of the recent Dec 2014 blocking of foreign sites and services including Gmail, we're happy to report that ExpressVPN servers are working fine for China users.

Living in China can be pretty awesome. The people, the language, the culture, the history, the food - all of these make China a great place to live or visit.

But there are downsides, too. Aside from the pollution, many of us have to battle the excruciatingly slow, blocked Internet just to get stuff done every day.

#ChinaProblems, right?

On Windows? Mac? Android or iPhone? We have an app for you!

Really? There's a way around the Firewall?

Let us remind you what it's like to use the Internet in China (without a VPN):

It's hard to stay in touch with people.

Social apps blocked in China include Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

Time to Instagram my #greatwallselfie. WHAT? Instagram's blocked?

And impossible to stay up-to-date with international news.

New York Times, Bloomberg, Bloomberg Businessweek, Google News, and all blogs on and blogspot are blocked.

What's happening in the world today? Seriously? All the news sites are blocked?

It's a headache to try to get work done.

Productivity services like Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Calendar, and Dropbox are also blocked.

Time to sync my files so the Chicago office can use them. [angry emoticon]

It's a headache to have fun, too!

And good luck trying to watch YouTube videos or stream from Netflix!

#badairday! Time to catch up on that TV show everyone is talking about. Nooo!!

With ExpressVPN, you can use the Internet in China without restrictions.

If only it were this fun and easy to jump over the GFW.

I can use Instagram again! I can read the news again!
I can do my work again! Movies! Blogs! TV!!

Thousands of happy customers use it to bypass Chinese Internet restrictions every day!

Super impressed with Express VPNs service. I live in China and had the software become unusable after upgrading to a new OS. Express's customer chat service was super quick and easy to get a hold of, even through mobile, and I was back up online with in an hour or so. Support was super helpful in working around China's notorious firewall to get me the proper software patch/update! Thanks, y'all!
I've been in China for going on 5 years and ExpressVPN is the BEST VPN Service here in the MOST BLOCKED Country on Earth.
Great product, great service I have been using this on my tablet, my mobile phone and my computer from China for the last four months. It has worked perfectly on my tablet and computer... Never so much as a tiny glitch. Recently, I updated the operating system of my phone to Lollipop and it threw off the VPN on my mobile phone. I sent a message to ExpressVPN, thinking I wouldn't hear back for a couple of days. Within an hour, I had a message back with clear instructions on how to fix the problem. I was up and running in no time!
The best vpn for android so far, it works well in China. Great supporting team.
Could not live in China without it I use this app all the time. I need it to use several apps. Love it.
I'm in China now and read that this is the best VPN for China! So as you can see it's working like a dream. Brilliant service i'm not missing a thing back home in the UK!
I have been using ExpressVPN for a month now and I must say it's the best VPN provider I have used. Being in Nanning, China accessing sites and speed are both important. After using many and I mean many vpn providers ExpressVPN handles both exceptionally well. I can't say enough about how pleased I am with there services and tech support. Also, it's the only vpn provider that actually works with Kindle Fire HDX outside the US.
Best in China Works like a charm on any platform. Decent speed (streaming 720p from the US: no issue; 1080p: may stutter a bit depending on day and time). Super hotline 24/7 reacting very fast. Worth every penny of it.
