Short for glamourous camping, glamping has seen a sharp increase in popularity, especially in areas such as East Coast Park and Pasir Ris Park. Typically using a ‘safari style’ tentage, they will come with beds, pillows and either fans or air conditioning depending on the company. Packages such as birthday surprises or marriage proposals are offered as well.

Outside of the usual glamping at the parks, companies have also come up with more unique offerings such as glamping at home or in the zoo and even in hotel rooms. Here are some interesting glamping spots to enjoy with your family and friends.

Things To Bring

Many glamping spots are still situated in outdoor areas such as beaches, and despite the nicer accommodations, it is probably still advisable to bring mosquito repellants and mosquito coils, especially if you have young children.

Some of the glamping destinations may also use shared bathrooms so toiletries and towels are another essential. Power banks are also another key item as tents do not come with power supplies and devices or torchlights may need a recharge.
