It's not something commonly done in Singapore, but in many parts of Europe and the United States, camping is often top on the agenda for family vacations and weekend-long escapes from the city. Camping is the perfect way to get far from the madding crowd and drink up all of nature's majestic beauty. Stunning landscapes, lush greenery, fresh air, wildlife and plenty of privacy and calm. What's not to like? Unfortunately, barebones camping also involves setting up your own tent, cooking your own meals, and not showering for days. And roughing it out like that is not everyone's idea of a holiday.

If you want the camping experience without the hardship, then try glamping - a new travel phenomenon of boutique camping. Instead of pitching your own rickety store bought tent, you can stay in luxury tents, jungle huts, tree houses, Native American tepees, Mongolian yurts, modern geodesic domes or other innovative structures built in the midst of the most breathtaking natural surroundings.
