A sand dune in central Vietnam and a tower in HCMC have been recommended as best places to see sunrises and sunsets in the country.

The white sand dunes in Binh Thuan Province, dubbed "Little Sahara," is where most tourists say they have found the best views of the sun coming up, according to U.K. firm, which analyzed Tripadvisor reviews to come up with its recommendations.

The dunes lie in Hoa Thang Commune, Bac Binh District, around 65km northeast of Phan Thiet beach town. What makes the dunes special is that their colors change depending on the angle of the sun or cloud cover.

Most Tripadvisor reviews found the best sunset views were to be had from the Saigon Skydeck on the 49th floor of the Bitexco Financial Tower in downtown Ho Chi Minh City.

Worldwide, most Tripadvisor users agree that the Angkor Wat in Cambodia is the place that offers the best sunrise view; and the Mallory Square in Florida, the U.S. hosts world's most beautiful sunset.
