Before this pandemic, people travelled a lot. Many of these travellers loved camping. They would carry their tents on their back and visit exotic places like forests and islands.

Glamping is available in all of your dream locations, so no worries there. Simply, book a glamping site at your favourite place and go on your long-awaited vacation.

Glamping vs. Camping – Which is best?

Glamping is a new approach to camping with an added feature of luxury. There is no way to compare camping with glamping. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. Glamping is slightly better than camping in some aspects. Camping is a fun activity for active travellers, but glamping is better for people who like a vacation once every summer.

·Advantages of Camping

Camping has a lot of advantages. You can place your tent anywhere you want; near a waterfall, cliff, river, lake etc. As long as you find an appropriate area, you can put your tent and start your adventures. Camping offers you a sense of freedom. You can put on your hiking boots, pack your travelling gear, pack your tent, and go on an adventure. You don’t have to worry about any sort of accommodation in such facilities.

·Disadvantages of Camping

Advantages and disadvantages go hand-in-hand. Camping has certain disadvantages, and if we compare it to glamping, the latter is considered the best option. For camping, you have to make sure there is no thunderstorm or heavy wind. As long as the weather is clear, you are good to go. Although most tents are waterproof, they cannot withstand heavy rain. You have to be aware of wild animals and stay clear of such areas. There is no added security when it comes to camping.

·Advantages of Glamping

Glamping has a lot of advantages. First and foremost, luxury is associated with it. You do not have to worry about accommodation. Everything is taken care of after you book a glamping site. It saves you from rain through a solid roof. Electricity is available, so you don’t have to carry power banks and other such devices. Water availability reliefs you from finding clean water. Restrooms are available as opposed to camping. It protects you from wild animals if any in the area. Glamping sites are available in all tourist spots. Some offer fun group activities too.

·Disadvantages of Glamping

A major disadvantage of glamping is that you cannot choose the area. It depends on managing authority. Glamping sites are available in places where adequate space is available. Some of these are far from famous tourist spots, so you have to hike your way to visit exotic places. Glamping sites are slightly expensive because of all the luxuries.

These are all the pros and cons of glamping and camping. It is quite clear that glamping is the best option for seasonal travellers.
