A couple of weeks ago we bought you the first part of our guide to the Best Instagram Accounts for Expats in China. Although some people commented that Instagram is blocked in China, we know that most expats here have a VPN and continue to use social media (more or less) as normal. As such, here are 5 more top China Instagram accounts you should be following.
When we think of China, we tend to think of the east rather than the west of the country. After all, most foreigners here are living in areas in and around Guangdong, Beijing and Shanghai.
