Perth ranks high on list of world’s best locations to watch the sunset

If there’s one thing Australia’s west has on the east, it’s the sunsets – and now Perth has been crowned the ninth-best spot in the world to snap the perfect picture.

Titan Travel has put together a Top 20 list of the best places around the world to catch the sunset, based on social media posts.

In the top 10, Perth came in ninth place, with over 42,000 Instagram posts.

Famous for the pink, orange and purple hues that light up its skies, Perth offers up some of the best sunset views in the world,” Titan Travel said in a press release.

Obviously, Western Australia does have an edge, given that the sun set in the west, usually making for an early evening trip to the beach simply delightful.

Titan Travel also analysed TikTok posts and Perth came in at number 10 on that list.
