Sitting here in my flat in Berlin (pretend I’m British for a moment, will you?), I can’t help but remember that just two months ago I was on a boat trip in Halong Bay, Vietnam. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to be here even if a European summer isn’t quite as sunny or warm as I would’ve expected. Regardless, looking back on my three and a half months in Southeast Asia there are more than handful of things that I can’t help but miss. Notably: the sun. Especially seeing the sun set nearly every day, almost always dramatically.
I saw the sunset on any number of beaches (not just in Southeast Asia, but all over the world) and I’ve probably got hundreds if not thousands of sunset photos that look like just about everyone else’s. But I don’t care, the sunset I saw at Halong Bay on my overnight tour on a boat was truly beautiful. Maybe it was all the cheap beer, or the people I was with, but that was one hell of a good night. View more photos after the jump. (Also, don’t some of the colors in the photos below remind you of J.M.W. Turner paintings? The last one is my favorite.)
