   From the XVI century European ships sailed o Asian markets on a regular basis. Their main goal was the purchase of the highly sought spices from the East Indies and exotica from China. Traditional trade and shipping relations between the west and east existed long before European ships arrived in the Indian Ocean region. Before the Portuguese discovered the seaway around the Cape of Good Hope ito Asia at the end of the XV century, spices reached Europe over land. The Portuguese were the first Europeans to play an active role in trading directly with Asia by sea. From their headquarters at Goa on the west coast of India, they tried to get a grip on the traditional trading and shipping network by capturing the entrepot of Malacca, which had a strategic role in the Asian trading network between the Indian Ocean region and the Far East. Spain made its was into this region from their colonies in the Americas. The Spanish influence was in the region around the Philippines: China, Japan and the Spice Islands. At the end on the XVI century, other European nations also found their way to Asia.
