    \$\begingroup\$ Google+ is absorbing Picassa and as such is in the same sort of space. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Can I if there is a reason why you do not want to use flickr? To understand what you are looking for. They support using non-latin characters and when I was recently traveling in Asia I met many fellow photographing backpackers and locals using flickr. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Alendri - Flickr's CDN is regularly blocked in China. You can browse the site's UI but the actual photos rarely if ever load. 500px, however, is accessible. \$\endgroup\$

You can try photos.163.com if you can read Chinese, or with aid from Google Translate.


Look to see what website in Hong Kong uses. China seems to block content with its Great Firewall, sometimes at random and changes policies almost daily.

If you can find a photo sharing site in Hong Kong, you most likely will not get blocked and the images would be accessible worldwide.
