    It works, just use another VPN service. I’ve travelled to Shanghai last month with NordVPN, and it worked just fine. I don’t know if I’m lucky or what, but it wasn’t that hard to find a decently working server.

      Sorry about that. Then I suggest that you ask for a full refund from ExpressVPN. Just tested another method which works, published it here right now!
