If the bugs’ life and messy mud are the only reasons you’ve been avoiding outdoor activities, then glamping is definitely for you! A combination of the words ‘glamour’ and ‘camping’ together, glamping is a whole new way to enjoy the great outdoors without having to sacrifice comfort and luxury (and romance *wink*).

This camping upgrade has been a huge trend all over the world for some time now, but there’s no reason for it to not catch on in our raw, tropical Malaysia. Here are five places in Malaysia you can visit for a short (but sweet) weekend glamping getaway!
