The top glamping spots in Malaysia to visit for your next retreat

By now, you would have heard of glamping—a portmanteau of “glamourous” and “camping”—a unique travel experience that allows us to unwind and take a break close to nature without compromising comfort. While sites in Kuala Lumpur may still be few and far between, Malaysians are fortunate to have many glamping options throughout the country, from Pahang to Sabah to Johor.

If you’re looking to spend some time surrounded by flora and fauna, these are some of the best glamping locations to check out in the country.
