Best Glamping Sites In Malaysia
Have you fantasied waking up one day in a leafy shady woodland where the sunlight makes polka dots on your canopy, the raw, earth smell of mud making their way to you, small rodents scooting through the flora making soft murmuring sound, without having to compromise your luxury and comfort?
Why not go for glamping? The blend of Glamorous + Camping gives you a marvellous experience where nature meets luxury.
*Me who love going for campings, would wake up every day with tiny insect bites, rush to the ladies (we don’t fancy portable toilets, do we?) and most importantly stare at the screen with ‘no service’ icon. However, those classic campings are always worth the strives*
Since glamping has been clutching a spot among Malaysians with most of the sites that are fully furnished with well-functioning toilets, comfy beds, air-conditioned tents, scrumptious meals just like your stay in resorts while you enjoy the stars glimmer in the clear blue sky.
These locations around Malaysia are where you should be heading to for a glamping experience!
