When you live in a country like Malaysia, you can’t help but want to go camping in the rainforests or on the high hills because nature here is abundant and unbelievably beautiful. But the reasons that stop you from doing that is the thought of trekking, putting up makeshift tents, sleeping in sleeping bags and fighting off mosquitoes and leeches.
But fret not, you urban jungle warriors…the glamping trend has arrived in Malaysia, enabling you to experience the wilderness with complete luxury and comfort. There’s no need to get your hands dirty or worry about being bitten by killer ants!
Here are top 5 glamping sites in Peninsular Malaysia:
Tiarasa Escapes, Pahang
Tiarasa Escapes is nestled in the cool foothills of Janda Baik located just 30 minutes outside Kuala Lumpur. Spread across 7 acres, your senses are at once heightened and soothed by a graceful vista of majestic trees and fragrant fruit-laden orchards. Here, rare vibrant birds seek refuge, butterflies flit about and red dragonflies dance along a bubbling brook. The best thing is that you can be part of it all from the comforts of Tiarasa Escapes’ luxurious safari-style tents and treetop villas surrounded by mountain mist, lush rainforest, babbling brooks, and winding paths.
