There shouldn't be any issues connecting in China. We don't block clients accounts as we know people travel for work or go on holidays. 

You may have to check the countries laws on gambling and leveraged trading sites. Some countries can block our site but I don't think China's one of them. 

All the best

I live here, IG is blocked in China, you need a VPN  and even using that its risky, connection drops frequently can't get on for days so i you have open trades you are in trouble  . It recently started, irritating to say the least! 

Pro real time and L2 dealer don't work properly either 

I mainly use a different boker now,

Every time I go to China I prepare a VPS (Virtual Private Server) in the UK. You can get one of them for about 10 £ a month or you can leave your computer listening in the UK if your ISP is giving you a static IP. The VPS will act like a physical computer in the UK so your IP will be UK-based. From China you can connect to the VPS via RDP (Remote Desktop Connection) from your laptop. 
VPS companies are normally giving you a static IP that will not need a domain name , so your RDP client will connect to a pure IP location bypassing the DNS servers within  the Chinese firewall. That way I normally forget about firewall restrictions.

I didn't complain much when I was there (2 years ago), I used it mainly from the north of China, Nanjing area. It will depend on your ISP when you get there. There are helpers to improve your connection if you find it unusable.

If you are not able to connect via RDP you can always use a VNC client. That will require installing a VNC server on the VPS. The help -desk team of the VPS will also be able to help if you ask them, I am sure they are used to clients that ask for the same service.
