Foreign websites typically load an average of 5-8x slower in China irrespective of how they're built, or where they're hosted. This test helps to illustrate how Western 'best practices' fail in China communicating the differences in loading time, and most importantly, the differences in page size (MBs), and # of resources.
Note that a slight deviation (1-3%) in the # of resources is expected from location-to-location. As network traffic and congestion is continually changing, be sure to run this test a few times to establish more accurate results.

What is the impact of on-page resource optimisation on my website?
Hosting is part of the solution, but does not address other variables that could cause your site to load slowly or incompletely. Even if a company acquires an ICP license (an onshore business entity is required to host a site in China), their site may still require resource modifications within their site to perform optimally in China.
If the option is available to host onshore, then that is still preferable over offshore hosting. However, for those hosted offshore, your choice of Hosting and Networks can nonetheless still have a 2-8 second impact on page loading times in China.
