Sunrise
As the year 2018 presents its concluding weeks, make a plan to view world’s top sunrise/sunset locales

Enjoy a sunrise trek
Region: Doi Inthanon National Park (Thailand)

Also known as ‘The Roof of Thailand’, Doi Inthanon National Park tends to be on every nature enthusiast’s list who visits Thailand to explore nature in its bounty. Located in Chiang Mai province, the summit of Doi Inthanon National Park is popular for its great views. Waterfalls and some fun-to-try nature trails along with two chedis (stupas) that are dedicated to the king and queen are all visited here by travellers and locals. The summit viewpoint that faces East is ideal to watch the sunrise. Many also throng here to watch sunset as well with the the two chedis that face West. One of seasonal attractions Siamese sakura flowers (blooming in Jan and February) also attracts bird watchers.
Couples
LET YOUR LOVE SOAR: Black Sea coastal range is a chosen location by many adventurous couples. In the early morning hours, the pre-wedding photography shoot begins to capture the golden glow of the sun as the hot air balloons rise in the sky making it a perfect backdrop!

Sunrise at angkor wat & sunset at angkor thom
Region: Siem Reap (Cambodia)

There are some handy tips if you are keen to watch the sunrise at Angkor Wat complex. To begin with, you must wake up very early to get to the temples for a good spot (The gates to the temple open at 5 am). However, for sunrise watchers, travellers who have been here say that an entry ticket should be bought a day earlier to avoid last-minute hassles. Remember to respect the traditions of the Cambodians by wearing an outfit that covers your shoulders and knees. Sunset is best viewed at Angkor Thom.

Turkish delights for the year-ender travellers
Region: Goreme in Cappadocia

One of the finest ways to watch the sunrise moment with the Sun casting its golden hue in Cappadocia is aboard a hot-air balloon during early morning hours. Goreme is a popularly visited town that is located among the fairy chimney rock formations in the historical region of Turkey. A balloon flight here in Cappadocia is truly revelatory and interesting to the core for adventure lovers, pre-wedding photographers with curious couples-to-be and tourists. Even the entire procedure of inflating a hot air balloon during the wee hours is systematic and you can help the pilot and his crew. Once up, watch the panoramic sights of the fairy chimneys rock formations.
Break of dawn
WHEN THE SUN RISES: If you are a photography enthusiast then Cambodian treasures are bound to attract your creative side. Choose early mornings at Angkor Wat when the sun’s glow is soft and the moment is perfect for you!

Once the flight is done with, a champagne breakfast celebration often awaits the guests on ground where you can take some memorabilia back with you. Meanwhile, when you go touring in Istanbul, then make sure you watch the sunset moments at the beautiful Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia Mosque. Sit back and relax as the sun goes down on the horizon filling your senses with such gratitude and awe.

Kickstarting on December 12, the Biennale will also have ‘infraprojects’, a model that was non-existent in the previous three editions of this contemporary art event. The Biennale’s infra-projects are novel assemblages of artworks put together by external curators within the framework and spirit of the Biennale.
