The year 2018 has seen glamping take the world by storm - and we’re not even halfway the year yet.

A portmanteau of glamor and camping, glamping is a luxurious take which incorporates and fuses fancy amenities on the traditional settings of camping. Its types include living in treehouses, or trailer trucks, where you get to have electricity, Wi-Fi, and sometimes, even a private bathroom.

It’s something Daenerys Targaryen is used to doing as Khaleesi, as she leads her Dothraki horde in the TV series Game of Thrones.

In short, glamping is a five star hotel staycation, but experienced in the middle of a camp.
