Anybody have recommendations for good historical fiction/nonfiction books set in China or Southeast Asia?

When I was traveling in Japan I read Shogun and thoroughly enjoyed the entertaining look back at the country's history. Hoping to get the same type of education while traveling for 1.5 months in: Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and China. (Though China is probably the best focus as I'll be spending the largest chunk of time there at the end of my trip.)
Thanks in advance!
