What is happening in South East Asia in 750CE

Chinese influence

By this period, Chinese influence is growing in South East Asia. Under the powerful Tang dynasty, China’s trade with the countries of the region is expanding strongly, and one consequence of this may well be the rise of the maritime power of Sri Vijaya, which seems to enjoy a specially-favored status as a tributary trading partner with the Chinese empire. This state controls the trade routes between China and India.

The Champa kingdom

The Champa kingdom remains a thriving center for trade, though further south the centuries-old kingdom of Funan has disappeared.

Pye and Mon kingdoms

Another long-established South East Asian state, the Pye kingdom in Burma, is coming under increasing pressure from Burman tribes from the north. Meanwhile, the Mon people have established powerful kingdoms in southern Burma and northern and central Thailand.
