5 Reasons Why You Should Try “Glamping”

Lots of people would love to experience the beauty of the great outdoors, but not everyone is into the idea of “roughing it up”. Let’s face it, not all can withstand the bare-bones setup that goes with traditional camping. This is why “glamping” is becoming very popular nowadays; it’s perfect for vacationers who want to experience camping without having to sacrifice comfort and privacy.

Intrigue with the idea? Here are the reasons why glamping should be part of your travel checklist:

1 ) It’s comfortable

Camping is a wonderful experience but not all want the discomfort that goes with it. Glamping means you get to stay in large, well-ventilated tents that are set-up like a chic hotel room. You get beds, tables, chairs, rugs, and electricity in your tent.

2 ) You get to use proper bathrooms

Traditional camping means finding a secluded spot out in the woods where you can do your business. Of course, not everyone is okay with that. Glamping sites often come with decent bathroom facilities that you can use anytime of the day.

3 ) There are no survival skills required

You don’t need to know how to light a fire using sticks or stones or thrive on canned beans during your stay. There are glamping facilities that offer kitchen equipment or even restaurants.

4 ) It’s safe

Glamping facilities are housed within grounds that have 24-hour security so there’s no need to worry about having bad elements sneaking into your tent in the middle of the night.

5 ) The tents look so darn pretty!
