Sunsets are mesmerizing and glorious, per se.

The colors, patterns and designs of this celestial spectacle never cease to be amazing, but they are taken to celestial heights in certain places.

Beaches, mountains and skyscrapers are obvious vantage points for watching sunsets, but even here, some places, like Phu Quoc, have it better than others.

Phu Quoc Island in the southern province of Kien Giang is Vietnam's largest island.

The list was compiled by National Geographic from a survey on their Facebook page, asking readers to name the places where they have seen the most spectacular sunsets.

Other places on the list are Hampi (India), Saskatchewan (Canada), Cap Ferret (France), Davis Mountains (Texas, U.S.), Colorado Springs (Colorado, U.S.), Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe), and Grand Canyon (Arizona, U.S.).

Phu Quoc was named one of the best place in the world to watch the sunset.
