  • 1st Stop: West Gate of Angkor Thom
    We will start our tour at the West Gate of Angkor Thom. Angkor Thom (Big Angkor) is a 3km x 3km walled and moated royal city and was the last capital of the Angkorian empire. After King Jayavarman VII recaptured the Angkorian capital from the Cham in 1181, he began a massive building campaign across the empire and built Angkor Thom as his new capital city. Five grand entrances allowed access to the capital city. Each gate is crowned with 4 giant faces and framed by elephants wading amongst lotus flowers. You will experience the stunning building. The gate, which had been abandoned for hundreds of years, will surely impress you with its beauty.
