The Art of Glamping
Who said that camping can’t be glamorous? It’s definitely possible when you’re “glamping”! The global trend of fusing glamour with camping has caught on in the last few years and lets travelers experience the positives of nature without the uncomfortable woes of camping. While glamping, there’s no difficult tent to pitch yourself, no sleeping bag and certainly no campfire to rely on. Here, LadyLUX features five hot sites that will show travelers how to perfectly blend luxury getaways and the great outdoors.
