I am going to China for 4 weeks. How to access Facebook while there?

I know google comes up with numerous alternatives (1. VPN, 2, securitales (which seems to be a paid service), 3. other proxy networks), but it is difficult to gauge the veracity and ease of these many methods.
Has anyone gone to China recently and found something that just works?
I am a Chinese ex-pat currently travelling overseas (I am in Japan and have reliable internet). In a week I will be going to China and will stay there partially in my own lodging and partially with family there. I have my own laptop. What is the best way to access Facebook? Do I have to be concerned with any repercussions that might flow on to my relatives if I use their connections to access Facebook? (I doubt it, but I thought I'd ask.)
