If you follow us on Instagram, it’s no secret that sunset is my favorite color. When we travel, most of my days revolve around when and where the sunset is happening. I’m not the only one, though. Many people flock to the best westward facing locations every day. We’ve even seen people applauding the sunset. “Yay! Good job sun! You did what you do every day!” While it’s easy to laugh, it’s also easy to understand the motivation behind the round of applause; some sunsets are just out of this world! When it comes to sunsets, it’s hard to beat Southeast Asia.
