    Glamping huh! I never imagined camping like this.. This is awesome! Camping comfortably with this kind of stay I may not want to go back home. Don’t need to bring many camping tools and other things because it’s there already. All we have to do is enjoy the stars and the sky

    These all looks such amazing places to glamp in! I actually stayed in one of those yurts in Mongolia. They weren’t as glamorous, and the heating was camel poop based, but it was a unique experience that I really enjoyed!

    OK… I used to hate the idea of glamping… then I got sick. Now, I’m LOVING this idea. I love being close to nature but camping is too painful for me, especially all the setting up and tearing down. This is a way I can be close to nature without all that pain.
