Express is what the vast majority use. Like previously said, if you research VPNs a few names will keep popping up. You can also look at https://www.flashrouters.com/ to get an idea of popular VPN services that can be configured on a router. Basically, the VPN services listed are a smorgasbord of the most common ones.

The VPN router is by far the best for a single location.
Available from HefeiConnect.

Express is one of the big names in VPN, but there are others. Most of them are fairly similar in what they offer. It's important they don't keep logs and have a large range of servers and efficient customer service. Use a reputable VPN, not a small, dodgy startup.

The advice in the article you posted can't be trusted because of the "compensated affiliate" disclosure at the bottom. Look around the online reviews in PC MAG etc. and get an idea of which names are frequently mentioned. Then you'll know which ones to go for.

Hefei No. 1 has American students. Granted, they're dual passport holders, but the point still stands. I can't speak for No. 6 or No. 8.

Also, I thought Ru'An was Korean? Aren't most of the students there Korean?

The school with the largest foreign passport holder population is the Canadian School. That is true.

Yes they have international programs but they are not international schools.

The Canadian school is currently the only official International school although others are in the pipeline.

That's not quite true. It's the only K-12 International School, but it's not the only official one. No. 6, No. 8, No. 1, plus Ru'An, and the Canadian School all are international programs, just not K-12.

The Canadian School is the only one that offers Elementary Education. There will be a new K-12 American Program in a few years.

I will be moving to Hefei in a couple of months and would like to know about International Schools offering elementary education. I have heard about the Canadian International School, but I am wondering if there are others. I would appreciate receiving links to the schools websites, evaluations, opinions, etc. Thank you.

We’ve all heard about the changes and point system that the Chinese government will be adding to the Visa process and Visa types us expats can get, but what exactly those changes will be we have really yet to see. Today we’ve got the exact information here on changes to Visas, helping you to clearly see where you stand.

All of these new rules will go into effect in the following areas by the end of March: Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Anhui, Shandong, Guangdong, Sichuan, Yunan, and Ningxia

While the laws will take effect nationwide on April 1st, 2017. Below are some charts outlining the classifications and the point system the government will be using.
