Website extremely slow/doesn't load in China

My website (1gb) runs amazingly well in USA and Europe. I’ve currently in China and I noticed that either my website doesn’t load at all or is extremely slow. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Do I need to set up a server physically located in China?

This issue is related to the Chinese Firewall. The only solution I’ve found is to set up an instance with a provider on Main Land China.

i have the exact same problem and my droplet in Singapore works sporadically. It seems that my ip is blocked by China firewall and I have to use VPN to connect many times. I use a cn domain though, I am not sure if its because I don’t have an ICP. Does anyone know?

DO really need to have a China datacenter like Amazon does now.
