Trivial note: “Limey” doesn’t technically work here, as it actually refers to sailors (who consumed limes to ward of scurvy). Given that there wouldn’t have been sailors anywhere near the Fullujah area…
See in context

Another note on Puchong: To confuse things further, there is Putian which is in Fujian.

Quong Sah could be Quanzhou if he was indeed in Fujian. If, however, he was off to the Nanchang in Jiangxi this is all likely incorrect.

Lung Twang… maybe this is Lianjiang county, which is located in Fujian??

It threw me off that he might be referring to a province here rather than a unique city, but Fujian is the most likely candidate for “Puchong”. Fuzhou may have been a possible stop, it’s almost exactly 300 km from Lishui, which is quite consistent with this account.

Hwotsing – If this is Huzhenzian, they would have encountered a very small lake coming up the summit (about .5 by .1 miles). However, I wouldn’t describe this as “central” since its on the eastern side of the city and most of the urbanization is on the western side. Could Hwotsing be somewhere else, or was Doc mistaken in some of his details? There is also a large river running through the city, though it’s possible he didn’t encounter it.
As I examine maps, I’ll keep an eye out for centrally located lakes on the way to Lishui. There are a few other lakes on the way, but none seem to fit the other descriptors.

Alternatively, if they did start in either Tianshizhen or Potanxiang, this could be referring to Huzhenzhen to the north-west. This would require an elevation change of several thousand feet and might be necessary to get to Lishui.
