Have you heard of glamping yet? A portmanteau of glamour and camping, glamping refers to going camping but without giving up the luxuries that you enjoy at home, such as nice bathrooms, spacious accommodations, and good food made in a proper kitchen. It’s pretty big amongst the haves of this world, but it’s also kind of controversial, as many people will argue that it isn’t real camping. So if you’re thinking of trying glamping, here are its pros and cons.

Pros of Glamping

First, glamping is much easier and more accessible than glamping. You don’t have to do all of the hiking and setting up tents that you do with regular camping, which can be preferable for people with illnesses, disabilities, small children, or just those who don’t feel like working on vacation.

Glamping is also much more convenient, as you don’t have to give up the amenities you’re used to like proper toilets, electricity, and even wifi.

Cons of Glamping

One clear con of glamping is that it will cost much more money than traditional camping, which can be done for very cheap. And if you’re in it for the camping experience, glamping just might not live up to your expectations.

But if you know that what you’re going to get is something closer to an outdoor spa than a “roughing it” outdoorsy challenge, glamping really might be for you.
