Many people will agree that a beautiful sunset is a good way to end the day. The dreamy quality it produces when it swathes everything in an amber glow is enough to make you swoon over your partner. However, as most of us know, though there is only one sun, the ambience and the surroundings must be taken into consideration. The real romantics have searched the world over just to find the right setting.

Naturally, a good view, meaning a clear, unobstructed one, is on top of the list. A wide expanse where the sun is directly over a sea or desert may be ideal to some, while other prefer the contrasts offered by a landscape of mountains, temples, or even buildings, which can highlight the setting of the sun. Even climate plays a role, as warmer places can bring out the best glow, and a shower prior to sunset will cleanse the skies of dust that can lessen the vividness of the colors.
Wherever you go, even if you don’t get a chance to see an amazing view of the sunset right away, the best part is that you can always try again the next day.

Thailand – 5 Years Later

In 2004, one of the worst natural disasters in recent memory occurred: a 9.3 magnitude earthquake in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The earthquake, not so devastating; the tsunami on the other hand, decimated many regions in southeast Asia. There is no official figure, but estimates peg the casualties to be around 230,000 people across 14 countries. It sounds pretty hard to believe, but it’s been 5 years since.

Thailand was one of the hardest countries hit by the tsunami, with an estimated 6,000 people killed by the tsunami. Even more shocking was the massive amount of structural damage – entire cities destroyed. If not by flood, then by debris – the tsunami carried boats dozens of miles to the interior, and there’s no doubt the boats took out many structures along the way. One of the hardest hit areas were the tourist areas like Phuket and Phi Phi. Anyone that came to visit in 2005 would have been met with destruction and decay. But how’s the tourism industry doing now?
