Do you like to visit exotic places? Are you fond of visiting famous landscapes? Most importantly, do you love travelling in the forests, near the sea, but not a fan of camping? Glamping is a new approach to travelling, and people love it this way. Fans of camping have moved on to glamping because it is easy to manage. Instead of packing your tent and setting it up in an unusual place, you can opt for glamping. You no longer have to worry about finding an appropriate area, setting up your tent, and hoping for no rain during your travel. Camping itself is fun except for the fact that you have to take the tents with you. Glamping frees you of this weight and all other things you have to worry about. Instead, you enjoy the experience of camping while living in your accommodation through glamping.

What is Glamping?

Glamping is a unique word, and people often ask what does it mean. It means you get to enjoy the experience of camping with extra amenities. Glamping includes a framed shelter with a solid roof, electricity, running water, restroom, and additional features you get in a hotel room. It eliminates the pressure of carrying your tent wherever you go. Glamping offers a tension-free travel experience. Just book a glamping site, and your accommodation will be ready waiting for you. Glamping also includes features like bed size, tables and chairs etc. It is like a hotel room but in exotic tourist spots.

Difference between Camping and Glamping

Travellers, hikers, mountaineers, tourists, they all love camping. It offers freedom to travellers. They can set up their camp wherever they want. There is no restriction to tent size and tent place. As long as you can carry a big tent on your back, no one will stop you from setting it up. You get to choose where you can set up your tent, and you can even change the place. With all these advantages, camping has disadvantages too. You have to set up your tent every time you change a place. Moreover, you have to check the weather before setting up your tent because heavy wind or rain can ruin your camping experience. Not all tents are waterproof. In the case of wild animal sightings, tents do not offer you protection.

Glamping, on the other hand, adds a feature of luxury to camping. It is the best option for people who want to experience hiking experience but do not like to set up the tent and manage all the amenities. It offers the experience of living in the forests, but instead of sleeping on an air mattress, you get to sleep in a comfortable bed. It levies you from all the worries. You can enjoy luxury in spots where people set up their tents. You can get a variety of features apart from the accommodation. Some include restrooms, while others don’t. Features like electricity and running water are made available with the accommodation.
