thank you. Yeah I didn't know it took place in China either until my freshmen year of college. I borrowed a copy of 1001 Arabian Nights from the campus library and it said it took place in China and Aladdin had a mother. I didn't get very far though. I didn't even get to the cave of wonders scene. The stuff before that was just too drawn out for me.

But the characters' names, titles, and even the formulas of greetings they used in speech were clearly Arabian, so I think that medieval Arabians who wrote the story used "China" as a random remote land, like "far far away" in European tales.
