Milestone Goals
Like DrBen's FREE Expert Maps on China? Pitch in to get more territory mapped - Donate AND Vote !
$100 per Map another Province of China (PRC).
Trying a new pitch in order to motivate you passersby into supporting, contributing ... and yes, even participating in the Great Adventure of mapping China and the surrounding Nations of Asia, this post is exclusively made in order to gain cash for your vote.

What is the pitch?
We have been noticing how your interest in our central map is topping everything else at this time. However,  as popular as DrBen's China Maps may be so far all things have been free and DrBen has not been rewarded. What is qorse: If DrBen gains nothing he cannot return to China and so in the end all stops and everyone loses out.
I sure hope you would have been inspired enough by what is already online, to give it a serious thought.

In order to help DrBen back on the silk road for more of his excellent work, we are asking you to vote.
Not all of China has been mapped, leading to the question: where to go next?
In short; DrBen's thought is to have you , share your opinion here and influence developments; now that is participation!

Since by far not all of China - and certainly not the PRC - has been mapped, which Province or Territory would you like to see mapped next?
- Maybe you have a China travel plan coming up and could use some help getting around? That is where DrBen could come in handy.
So ...
IF YOU tell DrBen where you are going, or simply which Province of China you would like to see mapped next. DrBen will get to work straight away. Of course all he asks in return is the small favor of a donation.
You decide how much is worth?

MAKE THE PAY, then TAKE THE VOTE: Naturally, the Province, Region or Territory with the most (bestest) votes comes first!

Thank you for your support and participation. Hope you will enjoy the adventure and fun with us.
Funding for an upgrade into full Mobile Version (I.e. Smart Phone and Tablet readable) and conversion.
$450 per Map another Province of China (PRC).
We would really like to make our website and all maps available to you on any Mobile Platform. However, with 2365 pages to transfer / convert, plus the various fees for the most luxury options, we need some funding. Help us pay for the conversion and the time ( 1 full month) spent by a partial volunteer to get some of the most basic work done ASAP. Please note: the TOTAL amountis $450 to cover for everything 1x, not per month.

Groningen, Nederland
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 !!

Since, the year 2002 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 unqiue guide to the Peoples Republic of China and parts of a few surrounding Nations. 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 DrBen 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 14 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 this year 2015  the fact of the matter is; unless the sunshine returns we are quite possibly looking at a disappointing shutdown before we even got off the ground with most of our plans. Therefor, for the first time in well over a decade DrBen has to call upon your help.

Please become a Patron of the Arts! You can support us for the minimum sum of 50 cents, which if everything goes well is really all we need to ask of you.
Any additional funds are welcome, of course.

Ps: Just because as one can tell from the above summary DrBen is not comfortable with what in his views still amounts to professional begging, you will find that anyone can support us for a direct return. A Trade if you will.
Please Shop in our Online Stores. You can do so at any time, even anonymously, by simply: 1) clicking banners on site (Google Ads), and/or 2) Downloading one of DrBen's Photofiles (for print) at the Asia Report Photo Store (see Index Page and menu's of all other pages) and  3) Ordering a book, video or other travel related product through the (various) online stores also advertized on our site.
