GLAMPING – What is glamping?
Glamping is the new trend on the rise in the travel world where luxury meets nature. Resorts which provide unique, outdoor accommodations and facilities which are far more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping. While camping is done with basic needs alone, glamping ensures the maximum comforts a person can avail while on a camp. It stands in between a hotel stay and camping. It requires a lot of preparation. There are various glamping sites which help people to know the lifestyle of glamping and also check whether it suits them. Glamping appeals to all categories of people whether couples, families, a group of friends or corporates going out for team building. More often it attracts honeymooners, those who want to break away from hustle and bustle of life or who want solitude in life.

Tips for Glamping
Glamping sites are available worldwide so when you first start looking for glamping property, identify the geographical area where you are planning. Whether it is a great European country or an African safari, study the environment of the area. Check whether your budget suits the location you prefer to glamp at. All glamping sites are not identical and are of different categories. It all depends on the budget. You cannot expect the glamp site charging $50/night giving you the same experience of the glamp site that charges $200/night. So plan your budget.
Before going for a Glamping, check out whether
- The glamping property is kept ready for use
- The bed is provided
- Electricity supply is available
- Cooking utensils and facilities are available
- Food and beverages are available
- Cleaning up provision is there
- Furniture is provided
It helps you to check whether all essential items required are provided by the glamping facility so that you need not to carry with yourself and add to your baggage weight. Also when you plan, please check out on activities available during the day time, type of beds and other amenities being offered, any special conditions like it being a silent zone etc. Before zeroing down on a glamping property, do spend some time on the reviews of guests shared on travel sites to get experience.
