Nothing is as IG-worthy as a rising or setting sun, right?

The sun’s hello and goodbye are two of the most popular subjects of photography in the era of the smartphone, and probably moreso when taken against a popular location or landmark.

The people of Mornings.co.uk conducted a study in November 2021 to determine which spots in the world are the most popular for sun chasers. They scanned Tripadvisor and searched the Things to Do section using the keywords “sunrise” and “sunset.” The places that had the most mentions of those keywords came out on top.

In the Philippines, the best place to watch the sunrise seems to be Kiltepan in Sagada. If you’ve ever been there, this is easy enough to understand. When the conditions are right—the fog lifts and you see a stunning sea of clouds—the place looks like a dream, and definitely worth getting up at dawn for.

On the flipside, the best place for catching the sunset in the Philippines is White Beach in Boracay. If you’re lucky enough to be in Boracay on a clear day, it’s virtually impossible not to get your phone to capture the kaleidoscope of colors at sundown—from bright orange and crimson red to burnt sienna and even cool purple. You can’t get a lousy picture when you’re at White Beach at sunset.
