VPN in China, use your or to take a lease from your ISP?

Going on a business trip to China, just a question, how to bypass Chinese firewall?
Last time I rented a VDS and set up PPTP and L2TP. In China PPTP immediately refused to work, the L2TP worked 5-10 minutes after falling on the hour (perhaps the provider is bad, maybe my hands).

So I want to consult what to do:
1) to Rent again VDS to configure a VPN on their own.
2) Rent a VPN from one of providers, for example as advised https://habrahabr.ru/post/296384/, but the strain of the need to install additional SOFTWARE.
3) Raise your proxy server, but it is not clear whether he will help.
On the Internet may require payment from the card and work with Bank-client so an anonymous and free services disappear.

your VPN and proxies will not help , as in China today, dpi and all that, it is necessary to take a VPN from a provider who is able to cleverly get around the firewall, and Yes, without additional software, there is not enough.

I'm in a similar situation took white home address from the dip and raised at home VPN.
Generally not much difference, I think are more influenced by the Protocol and what province in China.

And not deciding which option is best chose both, so I can share from personal experience:
after spending 10 days in China using the Internet mostly at hotels and access points of different organizations, a private VPN has been the most preferred option.
Used one of the VPN provider from the list on the link in question, failed to connect even once, although they have server in Hong Kong, the connection is not established. In Russia their VPN to work.
Your VPN deployed on VDS hosting provider using L2TP. If the data channel was stable (usually it's rare, most stable Internet connection I had at 4 am local time) that the VPN connection was a great success.
Maybe this information will help someone!
