[UPDATED 19 August 2019] Many might find this term “Glamping” familiar. You’ve heard it somewhere, seen it on someone’s Instagram feed, but never knew what it was all about. Glamping = Glamorous + Camping. When you go glamping, don’t worry about having to pitch a tent, spending your night in a sleeping bag on cold hard grounds, and you definitely do not need to build a fire! (P.S. No bears or wild animals as well!) We also recommend you to give up your technologies and go back to the basics! This way you get to experience camping as well as a good recharge from the hustle and bustle of city life. Credit: giphy Here are 13 places in Indonesia that offer you this luxurious experience! P.S.
