Glamping, a fusion of glamour and camping, has been a rising trend in travel that combines the joy of being close to nature with the comfort of luxury accommodation. Here are my top seven glamping destinations across the world:
1. Amanwana, Moyo Island, Indonesia

2. Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, Thailand
Situated in the exotic bamboo jungles of Thailand, this camp offers luxury tents with handcrafted furnishings, private outdoor rain showers, and stunning views. Guests can enjoy an elephant trekking experience, spa treatments, and exquisite dining.
3. White Desert, Antarctica
