Many go camping to experience nature and get away from the city’s frenetic pace and concrete jungle. However, not everyone can rough it out with no clean toilet, a comfortable bed to sleep in and other comforts of home. For those who don’t want the typical camping experience, they can always try glamping. “Glamping” is a fancier form of camping; you’ll get tent-like accommodation but more spacious and comfortable than the usual sleeping bag.
These glamping destinations near Manila provide you with a great escape from city life, even for just a night or so. The tents provide comfortable accommodations which are an upgrade from the usual camping experience. Some have fans while others provide air conditioning. They also provide comfortable beds, towels, and toiletries.
