    Smile Having been/have been

    Ladies & Gentle Men,
    Would you kindly clarify these doubts?

    having been and have been is same? If any difference please explain with some good examples.

    also, please show me how to use the word 'alternatively' ?

    lots of thanks in advance.

    having been is the continuous form of have been, being able to be used without anything preceding it (non-finite form); have been is meant always to be used with a subject (finite form):

    I have been to Malaysia twice, so I know what it is like over there.
