Holiday mode ON: From Camping to Glamping

It’s December! It means we’re entering holiday mode. Can you feel the vibes already? After 11 months of hustle and bustle of city life, it’s time to finally take a long break and reset before we enter the New Year. So, where would the next holiday destination be?


Planning a nature retreat in Malaysia is one of the most popular activities during the holidays, but not everyone is a fan of sleeping in a tent with minimal facilities. As quarantine restrictions are starting to ease and everyone just cannot wait to get back on the road, glamping has become more famous for today’s travellers. The word itself is a mashup of glamour and camping. It is a perfect activity to satisfy the need to be outdoors while also avoiding the struggles that come along with camping outside.


What makes glamping different?

Comfort level. Some may book a glamping getaway and some may opt to DIY glamping so each experience will be unique. In Malaysia, amenities and facilities can differ between glamping accommodations. Some may have Wi-Fi, daily cleaning services, full meals, and lodging. Others may only provide breakfast with options to add on meals. On the other hand, DIY glamping can be as simple as adding a bigger tent, gourmet cooking, little decorations, and a comfy mattress. It is also a great way to introduce a new camper outdoor or for a celebration.
