Glamping allows you to experience nature without sacrificing creature comforts.
Pitching a tent on the hard ground and roughing it for a few nights might not be everyone’s idea of fun in the great outdoors. Glamping, on the other hand, appeals to a wide range of people. Rather than roughing it in the wilderness, glamping allows you to enjoy the outdoors without giving up all the creature comforts you’ve come to expect from a conventional camping trip. A combination of “glamorous” and “camping”, glamping defines a kind of camping that includes amenities and, occasionally, resort-like services that are not typically associated with “classic” camping. Millennial holidaymakers who seek both the comforts of a hotel and the escape and adventurous recreation of camping have made glamping popular. With glamping, you can stay in a variety of lodgings, including yurts, RVs, airstreams, and more permanent options like cabins or tents. What they all have in common is that they offer a more luxurious camping experience than traditional camping, yet they still allow you to connect with nature.
Among the places where you can camp the fancy way is in Genting Highlands, a renowned tourist destination that’s only 45 minutes away from Kuala Lumpur. The fresh mountain air is one of the main draws for visitors, but there are plenty of other things to do here, including dining, shopping as well as having fun at the indoor and outdoor theme parks. Another fantastic feature of Genting Highlands is the ease with which you can go trekking in the surrounding area and even hike to nearby waterfalls. This makes it popular among both nature enthusiasts and city dwellers seeking serenity away from the bustling city.
There are two places to consider if you want to go glamping in Genting Highlands. Glamz At Genting is a glamping-style lodge hidden beneath a blanket of shimmering stars in the cool foothills of Genting Highlands. This nature-inspired glamping site is surrounded by lush foliage but has hotel-like amenities such as hot water, WiFi, electricity, water supply, and clean toilets. This glamping location provides a one-of-a-kind experience ideal for stargazing, sunset or sunrise viewing.
There are several Glamping Domes to select from, each perfect for a romantic or family getaway. As there is a hammock provided in the dome, you can even take a nap while admiring the night sky. The Rustcamps Glamping Resort is another option, offering lodging with free WiFi, private parking, and get this, access to a hot tub! Each suite has its own bathroom with a hot tub, as well as slippers, a hairdryer, and complimentary toiletries. The experience of glamping is comparable to that of staying in a hotel, with the added bonus of being surrounded by nature and breathing in fresh, clean air. What more could you ask for?
