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.
There’s Nothing Like Southeast Asia Sunsets
When traveling in Southeast Asia, you will be treated to many a sunset. It’s a great marketing tool for local businesses offering everything from sunset cruises to horseback riding. On beaches from Bali to the Thai islands, sunset cocktails and live music are a big part of the experience. Be sure and have your camera ready!
We’ve curated 18 of our best Southeast Asia sunset photos for your viewing pleasure. Hopefully, this will inspire you to start planning a trip to our favorite corner of the world!

Watching the sun dip below the ocean with a fresh coconut or cold beer in hand just never gets old. Whether you spent the day hiking, exploring temples, or just lounging on the beach, it’s the perfect way to end it and transition into the nightlife.
