I think a large chunk of La Union’s charm comes from its sunsets. At least for me, what always gets me to endure a five hour road trip from Manila to San Fernando or Urbiztondo is knowing that I’m going to get a clear and wide view of the sky’s colors unfolding right in front of my very eyes. Tip: my favorite place to stay in La Union is in Aureo because it never fails to showcase a beautiful landscape of the sun rising and setting. It’s also where I took this photo!

I actually wasn’t expecting to witness a nice sunset such as this when I went to Coron. Heck, I was even afraid that I wouldn’t be able to watch a single sunset at all. We stayed in the town proper so there were a lot of buildings and houses that were blocking the view of the sky. But I was so glad nature proved me wrong when I was greeted by this magnificent sight. Tip: best place to watch the sun set in Coron is in 3.14 Suites. They’ve got a 2nd floor veranda AND a sky deck on the 5th floor too.

Just look at those golden rays! I honestly don’t think you can get a view like this in the city. (But if you know a place in the Metro that does... help a fellow sunset chaser and hit me up!!!!) My family was able to get such a nice view when we rented a beach house in La Playa at The Strand.

Around the time we went to Tali in December 2017, I had my heart devastatingly broken. To add to that, on the morning of my family’s drive to Batangas, all things that could possibly go wrong went wrong as wrong could go. After a long and stressful day, we finally arrived at our AirBnB and had more than a few drinks to let the stress die down. Watching the sun bid goodbye to a terrible with a cotton candy sky felt like a relief and a release.

It’s a wonderful world, especially without a filter. While no sun in sight, the sky‘s soft swirls and gentle brushstrokes of golden warmth remains to be a lovely sight. Tip: If you’re running out of ideas on where to stay in Zambales, you might want to try Casa Angelina in Cabangan. Not a lot of people, the beach is pretty clean too! If you haven’t caught the pattern by now, I really, really like watching sunsets by the beach. Though the travel time may feel like forever, it’s definitely worth it if it means not having high rise buildings, lamp posts, and electric wires to block your view.
