I work daily on providing you with a better and better guide to The Peoples Republic of China; that is not only its grandiose Capital Beijing but any odd place you may want to visit or know more about. Covering all of China Impossible? Let's try and see how far we can get !!

In between the years 2000 and 2013 i have been traveling through China, studying Chinese subjects and writing stories, backgrounds and reviews about it all for you, in so doing creating what has by now become quite the detailed and unique guide to the Peoples Republic of China and parts of a few surrounding Nations (Silk Road mainly). The Ultimate goal is to provide you with the ultimate self guided tour of China and Asia, to be available on your laptop or mobile device anywhere in the world.
If had not seen our website already, and are not familiar with or - Please do browse our posts on this page for a brief introduction to the highlights and main achievements, so far. As such a massive undertaking as this is "never"complete, a lot of our projects are ongoing. Which is why at this time, DrBen must ask for monthly donations.

Since its first day of operations in the year 2002 and over the last 17 years has been available for FREE !! , which meant that anyone anywhere in the world no matter fortunate or unfortunate could use our website not merely for the pleasurable experiences of travel but more importantly for self education, research, and also the expansion of the mind regardless of local or personal limitations. Our intentions are firmly to keep it  this way.

Yes, so far, DrBen has been able to pay his and your way by operating in the stock market and selling various products internationally. We had a good 10 years with a growing international crowd appreciating our various maps, stories, photos and the like, especially over the last 2 years gaining us a small Community of avid followers, Fans and often even friends.
However, having seen years of economic crisis and not much help along the way, DrBen finds himself in a bind: even he is near out of options. Or so it seems ...
With no Government to back us, no subsidies or even sponsorship, and the European Union possibly falling apart on us our budget for exploring China and retelling its correct history and cultural information has dwindled to below minimal. Surely, one need not count on the Chinese Government for help. On the contrary.
Sadly, although we have plenty of stories to tell you and the world public, in the year 2015 DrBen had to shutdown most of his online work because of lack of funding and technical woes with the system. Ever since DrBen has been sidelined only able to create in-depth google maps to go with all topics yet to be described. In order to return to full functionality he has to call upon your help.
FIRST GOAL: Donate now and help us pay for a wordpress system which will allow us to stay online forever and start telling fresh stories again every day, all week, all year.

Please become a Patron of the Arts! Help DrBen rebuild his system with up-to-date technology (price tag $ 3500 all included). Then, after I have delivered you some free education on historic topics, important landmarks and the like in China and the Silk Road, help DrBen and skeleton crew back on the road in China and Asia.
Start off as basic patron paying $1 per delivered online creation (Introduction to landmarks with photo's, in depth histories, google maps, source listings, etc). Or step up the support and receive additional perks like a 5x full shout out on social media, unique gifts from the DrBen library and more. The more you donate the better and more inspired I become. Rest assured: DrBen will never abuse your donations but make thorough deliveries in return (see current postings for proof).

Ps: Any additional funds are welcome, of course. For direct, one time donations please use the paypal link (See frontpage corner bottom right) - or click here:
$1 of $3,500 per new Online Page, worthwhile web addition or story with photo's!
Have you visited and browsed about but were turned off by the ancient system and various technical glitches?

We would really like to make our website and all maps available to you in a fresh up to date computer system and ensure you can also browse our website(s) on any Mobile Platform or Device. Our front pages now run in PageCloud and can now be considered up to date.
However, that still leaves some 2365 pages to transfer / convert into the fast loading current day technology system. In order to progress and expand in the future we need a fully modern system that will never go out of date and which can be transferred to any other computer.
Luckily, we have a strong offer from a local company named ! The offer: For $3000 DrBen will have the creation of the new system and also be able to take lessons which will enable him to manually go through the 2365 pages mentioned and convert them for you while working on fresh content, reports and stories about China and silk road nations.

Yes, this is going to be a lot of work and will give me a job for days, weeks and months to come. I am willing to make the sacrifice and do the hard work, if you -the world- support me.
Please note: since business plans are like war plans and never go off entirely as planned beforehand, I have added another 500 dollars to deal with unexpected costs.

Please help DrBen on the way and donate for us to buy the WordPress based system and develop new content for,, and other websites. You have the power to help DrBen gain a new system and to send him back to daily work on creating amazing content which will wow you every day of the week!
Thank you for any contribution you can give in order to reboot everything from the base.

1 time Paypal Donations of $20 will earn 5 free tweets or mentions on any social media platform of your choice (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook). Advertise yourself and/.or your brand by being a supporter of DrBen's !!
Paypal Contributions above $25 will earn a unique and special gift created by DrBen from his personal library - which will be mailed to you.
