Cloth Map is viewer-supported. Contributions from our audience help pay for flights, lodging, guides, translators, camera operators, editors, music licensing, and more. If you think learning about the world and bringing us all closer together is important, we’d love to have you with us!



The primary way folks support Cloth Map is through Patreon. Depending on the level of monthly contribution, our Patrons receive:

  • Behind-the-scenes Travelogue videos, which show what it's like to actually produce a project like this!

  • Exclusive videos like audience Q&As, extended cuts, and deleted scenes

  • "Secret Sauce" documents: all our research, itineraries, journal entries, where we ate and slept, etc.

  • Access to our Discord channel, where we chat about everything from travel tips to video games to K-pop

For more about how this process works, see our Patreon page!

Credit Card / PayPal


While you won't get the rewards associated with Patreon, you can support us directly with a credit card or PayPal account, using a one-time or recurring (monthly) contribution.

Note: recurring contributions require a (free) PayPal account.

If you are currently contributing on a recurring basis but would like to cancel your subscription, please see this page.



We know some of you like to stay anonymous, or experience difficulties due to government restrictions (like folks in Cuba and Crimea). If you'd still like to contribute, you can do so with cryptocurrencies.

Brave Browser


Brave is a free, privacy-focused, ad-blocking web browser that has its own way of compensating Internet creators for their work. Users of Brave can opt to contribute a monthly sum that gets divided among all websites they visit.

For example, if you spend 23% of your web-browsing time on, 23% of the money you’ve decided to put toward Internet content that month is given to Giant Bomb.

All you need to do to help Cloth Map is install Brave and add funds to the Brave Payments system in the browser. The rest happens automatically when you watch our videos!
