What works and doesn’t work online in Shenzhen

I use online services a lot, so I made a list of what worked and didn’t work during my trip here. One of the first things that you notice is the latency on some sites. This is largely because the servers that I am trying to access content or functionality on are on the other side of the world.

You really feel this on things like video streaming and hotel booking sites for some reason. There are some services which don’t really aim at the Chinese market and consequently don’t comply with local regulations. Overall I didn’t really feel at a disadvantage with the difference to my online life.
