The Chinese began to re-establish their importance in the Pacific from the 13th century, and under the Ming dynasty in the 15th they were sailing to the west coast of India and to East Africa. It was in the same epoch that Europeans first sailed into the Indian Ocean from the west, though this was towards the end of the century, after the Chinese had disengaged.
