Best Answer

Columbus set sail to find a feasible sea route between Europe and Asia. He was seeking the lands then known as Cipango (Japan), Cathay (China), the Spice Islands (Indonesia), and India. His and other explorers motive's were economic. They wanted to avoid the costly overland routes to Asia in order to purchase the goods found in the East and demanded by the consumers in Europe.
