My sister and I don’t agree on much.
That said, when we were backpacking around Thailand in early 2017, we certainly agreed on one thing… Thailand has some of the prettiest sunsets we’ve ever seen.
Granted, we haven’t exactly seen ALL of the sunsets in ALL of the world (challenge accepted).
However, out of the ones we have seen, the following 3 are some of the best!
1. Ao Nang
Stunning Thailand sunsets 101: Ao Nang Beach.
Why? Well, an hour before the sun actually set, there were some sinister dark grey clouds in the sky.
Then miraculously, within 30 minutes, the sky cleared. And what was left was a soft gradient of blue to pink to purple to yellow over the peaceful tranquility that was the ocean.
One word: bliss.
2. Koh Phangan
What I loved the most about the Koh Phangan sunset was the pastel colours and how they seemed to effortlessly flow into each other.
Again there were a few clouds in the sky on this particular day, but in no way did they damage the view.
The result? A mesmerising backdrop to the beautiful beach.
3. Koh Samui
Lastly, Koh Samui my favourite out of the three Thailand sunsets. And it was simply because of the vibrancy of the colours.
As there had been a storm an hour prior, there were still some rainclouds in the sky. Having said that, the greyness of the rainclouds only emphasised the vivid hues of the sunset.
And I think the fact that we were looking out over a gorgeous view of the harbour definitely worked in this sunset’s favour! It truly took my breath away.
Thailand Sunsets: Memories That Last Forever
All three of these sunsets were definitely a treat for the eyes and did nothing but add to Thailand’s overall beauty and charm.
What a country, what a trip and what incredible, lifelong memories!
