Luxury camping, anyone? Well, you already know that camping is originally done for you to get out of your comfort zone, which in this case is your home, to brave the outdoor elements and live in tents or makeshift shelters just like how the early humans did. But what if camping is tweaked and instead of sticking to primitive ways, give it a little glamour? Glamorous camping, if you may call it that way, is epitomized in an activity called “glamping.”
Glamping was invented to suit the desire of people who want to try out camping in a remote or far away place but bring with them all the conveniences of a home or hotel accommodation. Some examples are tree houses, nature lodges, eco-pods, caves, barns, just to name a few.
So, if you are interested in the prospect of having fun by way of glamping, perhaps these reasons we listed below will pretty much convince you to give it a try:
1. You’re literally bringing the conveniences you’re used to having at home.
Arguably the most popular selling point of glamping is the idea of bringing the conveniences of a luxurious or comfortable accommodation while being situated at the heart of nature or in a remote location away from the city. No one’s going to resist the temptation of having to sleep and rest in a warm and cozy bed and wake up in the morning to the sound of nature surrounding you.
2. There’s no corresponding guilt in terms of ecological footprint.
While luxury hotels, condominiums, and apartments bring luxurious living to millions of people, there’s no denying the large ecological footprint those structures have made, destroying what was fields and forests and converting them into commercial structures. In glamping on the other hand, you won’t feel guilty about living luxuriously and comfortably because you’re staying in units like huts, rooms, and cabins which are built to have as little ecological footprint as possible considering that they’re made for the guest to enjoy living beside nature and enjoying it, rather than destroying it.
3. You get to choose and stay in very unique places.
Because glamping accommodations have become so popular these days, you can choose from a wide range of accommodations options; there even are some that are so unique that they’re a bit pricey. Now if you’re someone who really is interested in experiencing something that you may never have the privilege to repeat, then why not invest in that unique kind of fun, right?
In the end, glamping is one kind of experience you never should miss out on because you may never have the opportunity to try it some other time.
