As the technology advances, more people are inclined to share their thoughts and experiences while they travel. We want to share to our friends and families our hapiness while we travel through social media, especially facebook. Your travel is not complete without sharing it to facebook. But what if the place you love to travel restricts facebook and other social media?

Going to China is really exciting, as the place are full of beautiful sceneries. The culture is quiet different. However, when you are in China, you couldn’t share your happiness to facebook and other social media. China restricts facebook, twitter, instagram, and other social media. I couldn’t undertand the reason behind the restriction. However, social media are not totally banned. It is only restricted for whatever reasons only China knows. Besides, you want also to read some news from your family and friends. If you are out of facebook for sometime, as if you are already disconnected from the real world.

Tip on how to access facebook when you are in China.

First, If you are still outside China, and knows beforehand that you have a travel to China, all you need to do is to download VPN (Virtual Private Network) software. This software will make your location virtually different from your actual location. There are many websites that offers free download of VPN software for android or IOS. My favorite site is ZOOGTV VPN. Be careful when you download a free sites because this might be harmful to your computer. My experience was when I post something in facebook, there are spam in the comments of my post. Worst, the comments are pornography. That was, actually a free VPN for android. So, please be careful.

Second, If you are already in China, you could hardly get a free VPN sites, all you need to do is to download a paid VPN. My experience was I ask a friend of mind, because we are in a group tour, to share his VPN software via SHAREit app in android, so, I got it free. However, at that time I need to access my facebook with my laptop computer and I don’t have a VPN in my laptop. So, I decided to download from a paid site. I recommend Express VPN. I have a very nice experience with Express VPN but the sad thing is, it is paid.

Enjoy your access to facebook, twitter, instagram and other social media sites in China.
