In the Philippines, luxury camping is getting more and more popular because it is widely being accepted by people who love to camp as well as those who used to hate the idea.
Both these groups of people are excited about the idea of camping and traveling without giving up on comfort and luxury. These camping sites could easily have the same facilities and amenities a hotel can offer its guests.
What is glamping?
“Glamping” is the official term for luxury camping. It is the recent global trend that has caught fire – particularly on individuals who consider themselves as outdoor enthusiasts. Basically, it is the upgraded version of outdoor camping the focuses on recreation and rest.
