Glamping, also referred to as “Glamorous Camping,” allows you to enjoy the outdoors and get closer to nature while still experiencing indoor comforts like air conditioning and working restrooms. Malaysia has an abundance of great glamping spots due to its pockets of tranquil and rich rainforests that combine the best aspects of your home and the outdoors.
