The China of Kublai Khan is the China of today. But Kublai's state is not the heir or successor of the traditional Chinese state. The legacy of Kublai Khan in China was the land that united the entire Han race. After the Yuan, all non-Chinese peoples who were dependent on Kublai seceded. The Ming dynasty did not include states dependent on the Yuan, such as Tibet, Mongolia, and the Uighurs. However, they left to the later Chinese states that these lands should be theirs.
