You will have to learn more about China before migrating to China or temporarily moving to China for business/travelling. You can read articles from my website and get contact to me with questions you are curious about as much as you can, but Alice also recommend you to get all the useful information neatly organized and packaged in an easy-to-read book. Here are three that I recommend:

Useful Connection Service

If you want to get free audio and movie resources from famous China Apps like QIY, QQMusic, you may need a VPN outside China, and if your traveling destination is China but you don’t want to lost your contact with your social media connections, you will need a VPN for Instagram,Facebook, Twitter, Quora, Telegram and even Gmail and Google. Alice had an experience of using several VPN services, but most of them very unstable, you may even lost your money after a sudden lost of contact with the service center after you paid annually or quarterly. But there is one, I have been using for almost two years. The service is very stable and most importantly, the service center is avaible from telegram and mails, you can easily ask them for help in case of any technical issues.
