I decided to put the mongols in mongolia and not closer to Samarkand in near the caspian for balance reasons, otherwise it would be only the chinese and japanese in northern asia. also this is more historically accurate. I am thinking of placing barbarian cities in places such as Carthage, Byzantium, Oslo/Trondheim/Stockholm, Hong Kong, Seoul/Pyongyang, and so on. because this map is really quite large and some civs like mali, india, and china can easily be isolated from all the other civs just because of the distance from neighbors. I'm trying to be as realistic as possible with bonus resources as possible, which is taking quite a while (toggling back and forth between US Geological survey maps and my historic and archaeological atlases).
