The four corners of your room can be overwhelming on days when you seek comfort and tranquillity. If you ever feel the need to unplug and leave the bustling city, consider stepping into the mesmerising glamping sites we have listed below both here in the Philippines and abroad

There is a certain type of solace only the starry night and the cool breeze of the outdoors can provide; when our quarters start to feel congested, one way to feel immediate relief is to pack our things, set up a camping tent, and spend the night away from the comforts of home.

However, not everyone can fully give up his or her nice and soft bed, clean bathroom, and cosy sofa—this is why glamping was created. 

In the modern age, people found a way to have a more relaxing experience in camping sites. Glamping, the portmanteau of "glamorous camping" combines the calming powers of the quiet outdoors and luxurious amenities at home. In most cases, glamping sites provide resort-style services that are not usually associated with traditional camping.
