If the thought of camping seems to bring back horrific flashbacks of insect infestation, the lack of proper amenities, and worst of all, no cellular or Wi-Fi connection, then glamping may just be what you need. Glamping, an abbreviation of the term, ‘Glamorous Camping’, is a new trend on the rise that is a more high-end version—think luxurious accommodations and facilities—turning one’s camping experience into a dream come true, rather than a nightmare. If you’re eager to try glamping, here are some amazing spots around the world that aim to provide an unforgettable experience.

Located between Mudgee and Lithgow, 200km away from the Sydney Central Business District, the Bubbletent is Australia’s first ever inflatable homestay which offers guests a magical night under the stars while overlooking Capertee Valley.

Arabian Nights Village, Abu Dhabi

Located in the heart of the Abu Dhabi desert while nestled in the dunes, the strategically positioned, Arabian Nights Village promises visitors an authentic and unforgettable Emirati cultural experience like no other.

Just as you think that this middle eastern dream couldn’t get any better, take a dip in the oasis pool with a spectacular backdrop of the desert and marvel at the incandescent stars once night falls.
