Malaysia can be considered as one such country that can boast of being a truly genuinely Asian country. Remember the tourism Malaysia refrain- "Malaysia, Truly Asia," right?! And what's more Asian and tropical than the luscious green rainforests of Malaysia? (right!). Also, various research also suggests that being surrounded by nature brings about a wealth of health benefits (a win-win situation for all!).
However, the catch is that we all say we want to be in touch with nature and the outdoors, but how many of us wish they can bring modern amenities with them on a camping trip?
Well, fear not! We at Kuala Lumpur Hospitality got your back- Gamping! If you cannot leave your air-conditioned and fully furnished bedroom with an attached fully functioning toilet behind, we suggest that you should try Glamping, which is more comply known as "Glamorous Camping."We at Kuala Lumpur Hospitality have listed down a few beautiful Glamping Places Malaysia offers! What's more, these gorgeous spots would not require you to exchange comfort for nature (you can thank us later, folks!).
