Josh Summers first arrived to Xinjiang, China in 2006 as an ignorant American traveler looking for adventure. He began blogging about the region in order to inform friends and family about what was happening but because there is so little written about this part of the world in English, his articles quickly gained readers all over the world.
At that point, FarWestChina was born. Josh states that the mission of the website is to "Bridge the gap of understanding between Xinjiang and the rest of the world". He does that through writing, photography and - as you can see here - through video.
Josh is author of the best-selling travel guide "Xinjiang | A Traveler's Guide to Far WestChina" that you can find here: http://www.xjtravelguide.com

A review of the best VPNs in 2018 (Virtual Private Network). Over the past three years I have personally tested each of these VPNs from here within China where censorship is the norm and I was able to find out which VPNs shined, which ones stunk, and which ones just got the job done.
