Thailand’s Sunsets

Pattaya SunsetDo you know the best thing about sunsets? It’s free art by mother nature and can be enjoyed daily from anywhere in the world. Sunsets are like nature’s eye-candy. Thailand is a beautiful country that I am glad to call home, and I’ve seen some pretty amazing sunsets and skies here.

Sometimes we take simple things for granted, like the sight of the majestic sun setting and the gradual change of colors in the sky. It’s so easy to find and appreciate wonderful things around us.

Limitless and eternal - a sunset in PattayaEvery sunset is special and there’s something grand, limitless and eternal about them. They are powerful yet calming, and somehow have a therapeutic effect. It’s really magical; the way the shapes of the clouds are highlighted and how the skies burst into different hues.

Even when the weather is gloomy and the sun is nowhere to be seen, you often still see a spectacular display in the sky!

Somewhere over the rainbow in Hua HinI love watching the sun set over the horizon, and living close to the beach is a blessing as the setting is even more special – the sound of waves crashing against the rocks and the scent of the ocean water to accompany a stunning sight.

Anyways, here are more of my favorite sunsets, skies and scenes during dusk that I couldn’t keep my eyes off. Most are from where I live, Pattaya, but few are from other places in Thailand too.

    Nita, those are great shots! Sunsets are awesome and they’re even better than sunrises because of the more convenient timing 😀 My favorite sunsets are the ones at the beach; I also see this theme in your photos 😉

    • Nita Nov 9 at 2:20 pm Reply

      Glad you liked them! Thanks Deia :) I prefer sunsets for the same reason.. Ha!

    Gorgeous images and you’re right, they happen daily and for FREE.

    You should check out Stay Adventurous – he runs a weekly Sunset Sunday series – you could submit a sunset there.

      Hi Maria! Appreciate it :) And I will check out the Sunset series. Thank you :)

    Great collection, Nita! My favorite is the one with a rainbow.

    • Nita Nov 26 at 3:04 am Reply

      Thanks Alex :) A rainbow is always a sight to behold!

    Awesome pictures, Nita.
    …so true. We take too many things for granted (like sunsets).
    My most amazing sunset(s) were in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean while crossing it in a small catamaran which took us 15 days.

    • Nita Dec 11 at 4:18 am Reply

      Thanks Christina :) And wow, at sea for 15 days? That certainly sounds like an adventure!

    Nita, these are such gorgeous sunset photos from Thailand! I’m now back in Thailand and I’m often reminded of how lucky I am to be in such a beautiful country.

    • Nita Dec 22 at 3:17 pm Reply

      Thanks so much, Samuel :) And absolutely agree. Thailand is a special country, beautiful in every way and I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Welcome back to Thailand!

    Nice collection of sunset! My favorite is the second one.

    • Nita Dec 23 at 3:49 pm Reply

      Thanks Raul :) Yeah, that was a lovely sunset. I loved how the water looked!

    Gorgeous collection of photos! I love a good sunset and you have described it perfectly as “free art from mother nature”!

    • Nita Dec 25 at 3:17 am Reply

      Hi Kellie! Glad you liked them, and my description 😉 Thank you so much!

  12. Silvia Dec 28 at 7:37 pm Reply

    This is such a beautiful post! Love the photos, and the reminder to look outside in the evening – it’s sort of remarkable how few sunsets we sometimes see, considering they happen every day.

    • Nita Dec 28 at 2:39 pm Reply

      That’s absolutely right! Glad you enjoyed the post. Thanks so much, Silvia :)

    Doesn’t Thailand have great sunsets? We get really spectacular ones here in Chiang Mai. :)

    • Nita Jan 14 at 11:14 pm Reply

      Oh, it certainly does! And Chiang Mai is pretty special.. I’m sure you love it there. Thanks for dropping by, Audrey! :)

  14. Seeing a beautiful sunset is always something I dream of seeing either at home or abroad – have seen a couple and still waiting to see a perfect one – can’t believe you’ve seen so many in Thailand – stunning pictures!!

    • Nita Jan 24 at 8:28 pm Reply

      Thanks Shikha :) I always look forward to dusk and try to sneak a sunset into my day whenever possible! They’re just special to watch, aren’t they? 😉

  15. Katie Featherstone Jan 24 at 8:56 pm Reply

    Lovely photos. My favorite is your ‘Silhouette of a tree at dusk in Nakhorn Ratchasima’! We get lovely sunrises here on Islay, Scotland too. Facing the wrong way for sunsets unfortunately.

    • Nita Jan 24 at 10:14 pm Reply

      Thank you, Katie! I love that picture too.. It was so random and unplanned. Sunrises there must be pretty spectacular :)

    Oooh so pretty! One of my favorite things to take pictures of are sunsets, I’ve seen some pretty spectacular ones here in Costa Rica but no doubt Thailand has some gorgeous ones too as shown in your photos!

    • Nita Feb 7 at 4:34 pm Reply

      Thanks Samantha :) Yes, beautiful sunsets here and I’m sure they must be wonderful in Costa Rica too. Looks like a lovely place!

    These are beautiful pictures! Seeing the sunset over the ocean is so beautiful. Here in Brazil, we only see the sun rise over the ocean! can’t wait to visit Thailand one day!

    • Nita May 16 at 7:29 am Reply

      Thanks, Hannah! The sunrises in Brazil must be lovely too. Hope you get to see the sunsets in Thailand soon :)
