Southeast Asia And Korea

  1. 1. Southeast Asian influences have been affecting regions of the world throughout history. Ever since a particular time, beginning around the year 900 A.D., nations have prospered because of its intellectual successes.. However, its geography never allowed these parts to unite either culturally or politically. Two dominating ones included India and China, which largely affected the other societies’ way of life. The Khmer Empire was another propitious example of the effects of this time period. Auspicious trade linked the various nations. Especially the islands, such as Borneo, Java, edifyingly benefited. Under Chinese rule for a thousand years, Vietnam retained many of its customs. These connected kingdoms all helped each other grow stronger.

  8. 8. Southeast Asia was influenced greatly by China and India. Because of the regions’ isolation from each other, they all developed differently and their cultures varied. Some empires that developed in these lands such as the Srivijayan Empire, prospered due to taxing trades that passed through their.
