Angkor Wat is one of the most famous landmarks in the world, and for good reason. The sprawling complex is the world's largest religious site, and its impressive temples, some of which date as far back as the ninth century, are truly a sight to behold. It is a particularly popular destination for travelers to catch the sunset, but finding the right place to see the views can be difficult. That's no longer the case, however, as the Cambodian and Australian governments teamed up to create the Angkor Sunset Finder, according to The Associated Press. Of course, Angkor Wat is not the only prime location to catch a sunset. Here are a few of the other best options:
This stunning natural feature has been a staple of United States travel for years, and in addition to its intrinsic beauty, it's especially impressive during the evening hours. There are plenty of good places to catch the sunset in Grand Canyon National Park and you really can't go wrong in choosing. However, one of the best options, experts say, is Hopi Point because you can also look out on the many layers of rock.
Oia, Santorini, Greece
The Greek islands have some of the most beautiful views in Europe. Crystal clear water, blue skies and a relaxing atmosphere make it hard to beat. Oia, which sits on the top of a hill on the island of Santorini, is among the best choices to view the sunset. The sun's reflection on the Aegean Sea combined with the unique white buildings helps create a scene unlike any other sunset on earth, notes CNN.
It's hard to find a place more remote than the Australian Outback. This sprawling region of the Land Down Under has become a popular destination for adventure travelers, but it also provides some of the most stunning views in the world, and that is certainly the case at Uluru. Also known as Ayers Rock, this iconic landmark provides one of the most breathtaking sunsets anywhere on earth. This is thanks in large part to the fact that ash, dust particles and water vapor in the atmosphere help create stunning colors that will leave a lasting impression.
