6 Luxurious Destinations in Asia for ‘Glamping’

For the ultimate outdoorsy adventure, camping is arguably a necessary part of the experience. After all, there’s nothing quite like getting in the essence of nature, sleeping right by a glistening lake and a night full of stars right before bedtime.

That’s why a new wave of camping has taken form in ‘Glamping’, or glamorous camping, to allow curious travellers to enjoy an adventure with the luxury of comfort.
