As the holiday season approaches, many of you must be busy planning to take your family to enjoy outdoor activities away from the hustle and bustle of the city, right? One of them is to go camping.

Did you know that there are actually many places suitable for the whole family to go glamping in Malaysia? If you are looking for a glamping spot in Selangor, below is a list of interesting glamping locations for you here. So read on to find out more!
What is glamping?
Glamping is an abbreviation of the term resulting from the combination of “glamorous” and “camping”. Just as the name suggests, glamping is camping in style.
It is an upgrade from traditional camping and often involves staying in small self-contained accommodation such as homestays, chalets or modern canopy tents. Glamping provides the perfect balance between nature exploration and comfortable accommodation. Needs and facilities are all provided, meaning you don’t have to worry about toiletries, bathroom and bed.
In Malaysia, glamping accommodation facilities may differ. Some may come complete with Wi-Fi and daily cleaning service, while others may not. Of course, glamping may not be as authentic as regular camping, but glamping is definitely less stressful and more comfortable!
