I recently posted 8 Reasons Why I Hate Thailand, but to be fair I do love Thailand more than I hate it. So, starting today, I will begin posting the 8 Reasons Why I Love Thailand in an 8 part series. By the time I return home in October, I will have spent 1/3 of my entire round the world trip in this amazing country. I intended my last post to help you learn what to avoid, but I hope this series will show you all the beautiful things Thailand has to offer.
So, to begin this series of 8 Reasons Why I Love Thailand, let’s kick it off with:
1) Thai Sunsets
Thailand has such an amazing geographical backdrop that it is very rare to view a bad sunset. If I recall correctly, the only “bad” sunsets were when it was pouring rain & the sun was not visible at all. Even after the torrential downpour this evening the sun creeped out just in time to “set.”
The colors of Thai sunsets vary to such amazing extremes that through the course of the same sunset, it can seem like a completely different sunset only minutes after it started (as witnessed in the two photos below).
Sometimes you see something you have never seen before…
Other times, locals going about their daily routines make the sunset even more special.
The bright reds, oranges, and blues seem to pop out more here than elsewhere.
After watching over fifty sunsets on Koh Phi Phi Don, Thailand, I am never bored. The following sunsets show how diverse it can be from one day to the next.
When tired of the “same ‘ole” sunsets on Thailand, one only has to change their perspective or vantage point.
Playing around with different objects can also be fun.
Stuck behind a tree? I’m sure you can still find the sunset there somewhere.
Do you sit in your favorite restaurant night after night? I’m sure you can find a new table with a different window to look out at the sunset in a completely new way.
Don’t you hate when you are trying to take the perfect photo & someone gets in the way? Sometimes, people make the picture. Snap away…
Thought you saw the equivalent of a shooting star at sunset? A once in a lifetime sunset? Be patient and you might just see something similar again.
I have had a lot of time to view sunsets on my trip around the world. However, I think I can safely say that Thailand has been the backdrop of most of my favorite sunsets.
How can you not fall in love with Thailand based upon its’ beautiful sunsets alone?
