what is a vpn and why do i need it in china?

A virtual private network in simpler terms connects your PC, smartphone or tablet to another computer and allows you to browse internet with that connection.  Thus if that computer is in a different country, it will appear as if your connection is coming from that country. Since 2009 specific sites have been banned from China such as You tube, Facebook, Twitter and Dropbox. This is the Great Firewall of China.

For this reason it is important for you to buy your VPN before going to China, so that you will have access to the internet world as you know it.
