With summer round the corner people are set to go places and have a nice and memorable vacation. While people look out for different new adventures, they often end up disappointed with the services they get and when their holiday turns out to be something different than they imagined.
Let’s take camping for example. Camping is not everyone’s cup of tea. May people may like the idea but when they actually go for it, they may face difficulties when it comes to tackling with mosquitoes, being in the wild, and unavailability of other amenities. But for those who really want to experience camping, with all amenities and have a lot of money to spend, Glamping is the perfect experience you can venture into.
Here is the official definition of Glamping: Glamping (noun) an abbreviation of ‘glamorous camping’; glamping involves all the luxuries of home. ‘Glampers’ stay in yurts, tipis or luxury caravans, instead of basic tents.- Macmillan Dictionary .
The kind of things glampers can expect are electrical power, lighting, comfortable beds, even private washrooms and hot tubs outside. By giving these amenities, glamping has opened up the outdoors experience to the people that have been disappointed with the idea of camping as of recently. So if you relate with the mainstream, why not give this “glamorous camping” a chance ?
