West Gopura Guide

The West Gopura is the little-used western entrance to the ancient city of Angkor Thom. Located about 1.5 km to the west of Bayon. Игра elder scrolls 5: skyrim - hearthfire на StopGame.ru

The West Gopura is much less well restored, if compared to the other gopuras of Angkor Thom. The majority of the gods and demons that line the causeway are already missing. Pieces of broken stones litter the entrance to the gopura. On the other side of the gopura, there does not appear to be a well-used road the leads out. The gopura itself seems to be at a dead end, hence it receives very few visitors.

Accommodation in Angkor

If you are visiting Angkor, for sure you will be seeking accommodation in the town of Siem Reap, located just 4 kilometers south of the Angkor Archaeological Park. In the last ten years, Siem Reap has become the biggest construction site in all of Phnom Penh, and hotels, guest houses and boutique establishments of all sizes sprout across town, providing accommodation that caters to all sizes of the wallet. You can find here a wide range of Siem Reap accommodation. For budget accommodation in other destinations, use the Budget Accommodation Guide. Although I intended it for budget travelers, you will also find a few establishments which can be considered nothing short of luxurious. So, if you're looking for accommodation for Angkor, view the list and take your pick!
