So are you planning to spend some days traveling in China?
Before booking your air ticket to Beijing, you'd better to know that you probably can not login your Google Gmail, Facebook and twitter account!
As your FIRST trip to China, I know that, you must be astonished, but please accept it is the fact that you really can not use google search, gmail, facebook or twitter in China, unbelievable to accept but it is true, so you want to ask why?

Before going to the "How-to" part, you may be interested to know why you can not access Facebook, twitter, Gmail... in China?

Well, I am going to tell you something about this story:
The direct reason which stops you from using google search is a project called "GFW(great fire wall)", which is famous as the great wall to many Chinese Internet geeks, but the only same thing behind the GFW and the great wall is that both of them are very big projects. Qin Shi Huang(the first emperor of China) spent countless people's lives in building the Great wall, the China Government spent numerous manpower,material and financial resources on the project of GFW.
In the past time, the great wall stop many hunter-gatherers such as the Huns to rob Chinese agricultural civilization, but the robbers such as the Mongols and Manchurian still ruled China for hundreds of years,I must say these abhorrent robbers are brutal, they killed too many Chinese, destroyed much precious Chinese culture wealth...

The GFW project is rather successful, because it does stop so many Chinese from using many excellent Internet services such as google search, twitter, facebook, yahoo, tumblr, wordpress and flickr....
However, still there are many excellent and educated Chinese across this great fire wall by using technology methods such as VPN(Virtual Private Network), they call Chinese Internet is just a large local area network. In a word, the GFW does stop many people from the free Internet, but it can not stop everyone, Internet freedom in China is something shamful, stupefying education will not last long!!!
If you want to know more about GFW, go to this wikipedia page.
