The ancient Chinese had always thought of their kingdom as the highest and most developed on earth. They believed (and for good reasons) that the rest of the world was barbaric and uncivilized, and because they did not see any reason to expand beyond their borders there were no justifification in their minds to spend money on exploration. BTW: There were no Mongolian invastions during the Ming government. The Mongolians who had ruled China were kicked out by the Ming dynasty 37 years before Zheng He's first voyage.
