Best Places for Chasing Sunsets


For the past year, I have wandered different places, met varied cultures and interacted with diverse people. It woke something in me that has been dormant over the years in the corporate world. Something has shaken up and it even transformed me into something that’s unlikely to happen.

And this entry talks about how sunsets are such a refresher. Sunsets, as one of the best wonders God created, give meaning to our lives and something to long for after a wearisome day. Most of us express big sighs of exasperation yet are thankful for a crazily wonderful adventure.

This place is popular with trekkers, whether pros or newbies. What I love about this peak is its 360 degrees view of the city and the mountains. The sun slowly hides from the mountains from afar giving glorious blends of orange and violet to the sky.

This beautiful paradise of the north of Cebu is very popular with its magnificent sunrise and sunsets. Though Sta. Fe’s sunrise offers best to its visitors, it also presents a glorious sunset. The silhouette of the standing coconut trees provides more effect to its lovely sunset.
