Follow @AsiaReportcom on Twitter for the latest China News, DrBen‘s latest reports, photos and News and Travel Warnings for locations across China and Asia.

As for the basics of the Community and the website, you may be happy to find how DrBen already laid some foundations for everybody by blazing quite a few trails in China (P.R.C.) and a few other locations in Asia. Busy since the turn of the millennium and with 13 tours of China under his belt, DrBen spent the last years uploading and creating for you what is by now a full on geographic, historic and cultural guide to all North China, including the 5 thousand mile length of the great Yellow River (Huang He) known as the cradle of Chinese civilization.

To start your discoveries and learn about China and other parts of Asia simply and easily navigate the website, either by province and city or through a detailed and layered Google supported Map by starting with your location of interest! You will never need a tour guide again.

To find all DrBen's work on China (so far) check the left hand Menu of this page for easy navigation to the web site (found on the web as but also a Chapter of

Direct Links lead away to the Chapters of the Site. Apart from chapters on each province and main cities in China, there is also a multitude of maps and histories helping to give suggestions for travel destinations and places to visit. Just to give you an idea: find a detailed guide and map to the Forbidden City in Beijing, Beijing City entire and also the Great Wall of China entire. In addition there are backgrounds on all 5 thousand miles of the length of the great Yellow River (HuangHe) which originates in Eastern Tibet. Next up: all of the Silk Road in China and Asia. Look and browse while we work on to complete what is becoming the Memory Palace of China and Asia !

You are always invited to join DrBen on various social media.

These are in order: China Report Blog, Twitter, DrBen Live TV (YouTube - under development), China Report on Google+ and as a last it offers a direct link to the China Travel Community on Facebook.

In order not to be lost in things and by chance, not hear your message, the above are the main social media channels you can reach DrBen through.

As this website is made for your information and not just to flash you with unnecessary messages, you will find that DrBen avoids such pages as PinInterest or Instagram, although we do have accounts there. Simply put, I do not really see how PinInterest will serve you or me in getting closer together and documenting the world so that you, as traveler, will have more knowledge and find your way to where you would like to be going more easily. Alas, although Instagram is a very popular medium it seems to be lacking in substance, and so I am not active there (yet!).

Not a Maphack at all, but you are an A-Grade #Vlogger or you would love to be? Well, here is your chance to contribute to something one may see as the Great Memory Palace of Asia. Anyone with a passion for filming, adventure or story telling, be it history, culture, travel or anything else that matters to you : Film It and if we can pin a location to it we may very well include your work into our maps, articles and stories so that anyone in the world make take knowledge of it, and act, think and decide for themselves. Help us show all of Asia to the world, by shooting it film-clip by film-clip and location by location.

Lord knows, having all of the continent of Asia as a white canvas to paint with your stories and colors should give all of you plenty of fun things to do. Be part of it, contribute and forever travel in imagination and real life. Are you a #Vlogger? Always welcome to send us a tweet and a link via twitter handle @asiareportcom and / or leave us a message via facebook on any community !

Are you a #Blogger? Oh dear, we are not quite ready to receive all your stories about travel locations across the continent, but yes ... we are working hard on our maps in order to reach that next level. So far, there are maps of Asia, Bhutan, Kuwait, The Maldives, Qatar, Mongolia, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, Taiwan, North- and West China combined with the 5000 kilometers of the (great) Yellow River, Beijing City, Hebei Province, as well as full map of the Great Wall of China‍‍‍ and also a partial map of the Great Wall of China in Beijing City Province, Hebei Province and Tianjin City Province only‍‍‍. Although it is very hard to travel the length and width of it, there is also a full map of Hainan Island and the South China Sea available.

Why Travel all alone when in in modern times one may share the experience and the know-how with anyone interested around the world? The moments of solitude are over.

Although DrBen really loves to be a trailblazer for all of China, the truth is - of course - that China and certainly Asia is way to big for anyone person to go and see by themselves. That would take forever.

So, what would be the answer? While DrBen laid down the groundwork and will lay foundations for your Community of Asia Travelers, Writers, Vloggers, Bloggers and explorers, you, the world public may now join in and share your friendship, knowledge, articles and other contributions via various communities DrBen has opened for you on Facebook. All you have to is join and be active as a friend.

Tip for Starters: After you made some Vlog's, think about making your own Easy Website for display and more :

EZ does it ; NO codes or programming required.

R‍‍ight, so if you are ready to pick up the challenge or have already created video, surely you could try and build up your own following through management of your own YouTube channel. However, in order to give you faster growth and reach a wider audience, here are a few basic tips.

As a first, we are fairly sure that you have already thought of joining up with some social media channels (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc) in order to be able to spread the message about your creations around faster and easier. Surely, you could manage that by yourself entirely, however, mind you, we are here ready to receive your message, review your work and where and when appropriate, share it with our online audience here at Just think of it as a group of likewise minded friends who are willing to help you along, basically for free! It's your fair chance at a FREE PROMOTION! (No cash exchanges involved)

We just love to do that, and help those who are learning to become greater talents along on the challenging ride to International Fame and perhaps a serious career in Vlogging, Documentary making and Journalism.

A second tip would be to think of starting your own website, as a central space for you on the web where everyone and anyone may find your assorted creations together arranged neatly for an overview, and perhaps with some extra background information added as to what you were doing at the time, where and how it happened and why it matters to you.

Now of course, this is where many aspiring talents flinch. After all, if you are ready to go and create, tell us what you care about, this does not imply that you are by any means ready to go and learn computer coding as well. Most creative people find this a boring distraction from the tasks set.

The good news is that you do not have to! In todays online world, people who want to create do not need to burden themselves with computer coding or have any complications with building their own website. Instead, simply to turn to a CMS (Content Management System) and most likely you will be fine.

So there is our second tip for online success as Vlogger or Blogger. Try CMS. We here are ready to give you a boost already, and point the way ahead for you. That is, after having tried many such systems since the year 2002, currently we have settled on PageCloud system as the easiest to manage for anyone. Try the adjacent banner (link) and you will get access to a free two week trail with this system.‍‍‍

Could your needs be satisfied with the PageCloud CMS system? Only a try out can tell. Meanwhile, we can let you know that we are very satisfied, not only with the available features and ease of handling, but also with the excellent service of their help desk. We find this essential under all circumstances, but especially so for those still learning how to manage it in basic. You do not have to sit there behind your computer with a need to create, waiting endlessly for replies. They are there for you any day, at nearly any time.

W‍‍ith this we will leave the choice to you and hope you find inspiration to start out your journey as upcoming talent in earnest.

In case you are not satisfied with PageCoud, simply shut down your account there and try a web search for any other CMS system that may fit your needs. There is an abundance of other systems available for your use. Surely, at least one of them may be up to your standards and will help you create the web base you need.

Meanwhile, please know that whatever will be your choice, we will be here to help spread your message around to a bigger audience worldwide. We are still a world top 1 million website and in some countries we rank far higher still. All you will have to do is create, share and start your ascend on the stairway to heaven !

If any of these countries is of your interest, or any location within them, we can hook you up and have your information (or video) displayed with this location for a world audience to find.‍ And there is more: you can also Vlog, Blog or Review any of the International Airports in Asia and also give your opinion / take on any of the National Capitals across this massive continent !

Find a blank spot on our existing maps, or outdo the work that is already there and linked in, and send us a message about your creative work (link). If you do not know where exactly to go loo‍‍king for your best location to score a scoop, feel free to send DrBen a message and I will be right back with you trying to give you a lead on a good location, a missing point, etc. (best channel twitter handle @asiareportcom or alternatively Facebook)

Start your creative work by photographing, making video's, telling the stories or make a combination of all these. I did and so far I have never regretted it.‍‍

You do not have to start from scratch like DrBen did in 2002. Where possibly and appropriate, he will gladly help push you along. I am always looking to support a younger generation of talent.       Give it a Try !
