Glamping, the glamour camping

The word sounds weird, no !!! When you read it, you can guess that it is formed by 2 words at least so if you say it many times, I´m quite sure that the word “camping” will come out of your mind but what is the first one ???

And if I told you that the glamping is the word to use when you plan to go to the nature for your vacation, something completely in the outdoor, breathing fresh air, bathing in the river (if allow), sleeping under the constellation… with a touch of luxury and comfort. Still can guess the first word ??? Glamour.

So glamour + camping = glamping, its goal is to make us

discover the camping in a new fashion way, in simple words, a luxury camping. Indeed, we don’t need anymore to bring our own tent, our own boiler… the only things we will need are good shoes and clothes because everything is provided (tent, bed, chairs…). You may wonder where is the funny part ???

I don’t know if you already did camping but the funny things are to build yourself the tent, bring your own food or go to fish in the river, sleep on the ground, find where to take a shower… and when the weather is windy and/or rainy, it can blow away your tent if built badly, well you may laugh after but meanwhile you are fighting to put it back, you will curse your destiny.

The glamping is for anyone who doesn’t want to play the adventurer and all those fun parts or simply to do camping without to be bothered to buy the tent, the sleeping bag… Just bring the luggage and that is it !!! A kind of starting 3 stars camping tourism and of course, more expensive than the traditional camping.

This form of tourism has spread in many countries like Asia, Africa, Europe, US… For example:
