China is a large place in the 'far east'.

Being on the other end of the Silk Road it was important to Western Europe as the source of silk although there was very little direct interaction. Marco Polo claimed to have visited the court of Kublai Kahn, although there is no record of this in China, and his accounts bare a startling similarity to certain Arab sources.
