Lantau Island, Hong Kong
The Tian Tan Buddha statue draws many tourists to Lantau, Hong Kong's largest island. Catch a peek of the giant statue, which is said to represent the harmonious relationship between mankind and nature, as the last rays of sun fall over the isle.

With its lofty Renaissance spires, Frederiksborg Castle provides conditions for almost any kind of sightseeing. Wander the museum during the day, then stay late to see the sun's descent over the gardens and Castle Lake; the views are almost as baroque as the landscaping.
Islamorada, Florida Keys
Known as the "Sport-Fishing Capital of the World," the Keys are any angler's dream. Of course, if stalking sailfish and wrangling wahoos doesn't sound appealing, lounging on a boat and staring at a Florida-orange sunset is pleasing to just about anybody.
