THE GLORIOUS PAST OF INDOCHINA
SaigonSan, inspired by the glorious past of Indochina, is part of the forgotten history of Indonesia in connection to Jayavarman II, a young man from Java in the year 802 who built his capital called Indrapura by the Mekong River.
The Royal Angkor Hall tells of the greatness of the Khmer Angkorian Empire, and features 3 oversized sculptures such as the one found at the Bayon Temple in Siem Reap and at Preah Khan.
Another section of SaigonSan features items from the night markets of various towns of Indochina.
A Museum of Indochina section has been dedicated to Henri Parmentier, a French architect and archaeologist who had saved many artworks from Champa (now known as Central Vietnam).
Saigon San features modern Indochinese street food with a modern twist- Vietnamese, Thai, Laotian, Burmese, and Cambodian.
