Despite the internet being available all over China, the Wi-Fi connections may leave you a little underwhelmed and social media networks may only be limited to the Chinese versions; such is the communist nation in East Asia. The world's most populated country, its landscape ranges from desert, rivers and mountain ranges to grassland areas. Shanghai, the pulsating heart of China, is a global financial center dotted with skyscrapers.
Looked upon as the startups "El Dorado", China has seen an explosive 4.4 million new companies born. The government is actively encouraging the young budding entrepreneurs to realize their dreams with funding and making administrative approvals easy to obtain. It is being said that despite the super active market of digital startups, there is a general lack of quality and innovative ideas happening in a world climate that requires more effectiveness. There have been a few startups out of China that have made an impact such as "Didi Kuaidi", which is Uber's competitor in China.
Coworking spaces are beginning to pop up around China, whilst many Internet cafes have ceased offering wireless connections due to the costs of new regulations. Do remember that if you are outside of a big city, your chances of finding a sweet spot to put your laptop to work will decrease rapidly, as do urban comforts. The government controls the Internet with direct censorship and it is constantly changing the rules, which can make it quite frustrating for a nomad to stay connected. On mainland China you will find that social sites such as YouTube, Twitter and Facebook are not available and access to most of Google may be blocked.
You should head to Hong Kong when you have had enough of being out of touch, as China's Internet is almost verging on the dysfunctional and definitely below the world average.
