You will need to get a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to access Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and other sites that are blocked by China.

 

If you do a search on Google for "VPN" you will find all sorts of options for all sorts of budgets/operating systems.

You need to get freegate. You can't get it online, but someone should have it on their computer and you can put it on a USB

If you pick the wrong VPN, they will send you nasty threats when you try to download pirated material. Also, Freegate blocks Adult content.

I use freegate and it works like a charm and it's free! 

 

You can download it from:

 

www.dit-inc.us/freegate

 

download.cnet.com/Freegate/3000-2085_4-10415391.html

 

You will have to use www.vtunnel.com to access any of these pages. 

 

At least that's how I got it.

With VPN you get what you 'pay' for, so don't trust the freebies, Caveat Emptor!

 

Ideally you want a fully encrypted VPN so 'they' cannot monitor your comings and goings. I use Identity Cloaker, 100GBP per annum though. I have also heard TOR is good but haven't tried that.

VPN Reactor is a good one, though it seems to be a bit touchy with using it on my mobile Android phone. Speeds are excellent though, and they don't bother me considering all the torrents that somehow magically make their way onto my computer. You don't have to sign for 6 months or any of those long term commitments, so give it a try for a month, if you don't like, switch to another. Do not use the free servers, you will only get a poor experience you wouldn't get on a paid server.

Facebook and other social channels are very difficult to access in China. However, if you are using a VPN provider and still you can't connect yourself to Facebook, I will suggest you to check out the best VPN providers who really works great in China from http://www.bestvpnservice.com/.
From bestvpnservice you can get the best VPN provider that can fulfill all your basic needs to access you favourite social media websites.

You can try www.securitales.com

It works very well for me, and it's very easy to sign up. No need to download anything which is what I was looking for. You can access Facebook and Twitter, etc.. I hope that you find what you are looking for. Being blocked from the internet is not fun...

Why do people still answer these questions, especially by posting the names of the VPN services here? Are you aware that you are simply helping the gov't to track and shut down the VPNs?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
