A new trend of a holiday in Bandung is staying in a glamping camp Bandung. Glamping or glamorous camping is one kind of accommodation where you can go camping without sacrificing the comfort of a hotel. It means sleep on a mattress instead of hard ground, ensuite bathroom versus sharing bathrooms. Best of all, no cooking is necessary; every glamping has restaurants. You don't need to set up a tent when you arrive and take it down when you go home. Plus, the tent stands on top of a platform, which is more comfortable than hard ground. That is why many of the glamping camp Bandung are resorts.
Being surrounded by mountains, the outskirt of Bandung becomes an ideal place for glamping. Today, you will find a glamping camp Bandung in the south (Ciwidey and Pangalengan) or the north of Bandung (Lembang).
There are three popular camping areas in Lembang. The first one is Cikole near Mount Tangkuban Perahu. It has been a famous camping ground since forever. Today, Cikole has a few glamping operators too. The two other popular glamping area in Lembang is at Maribaya and Cisarua.

A big tent is standing in the middle of the platform. Inside, the tent has a divider between the designated living room and bedroom. You will not sleep on hard ground but a mattress with a sleeping bag :) There are telephone and electric sockets in the living area. Instead of tv, you will only get a radio. Lamps inside the tent are only a small emergency lamp. Every tent has a private bathroom that is built under the platform. Usually, you make a bonfire when you go camping. Here you will have a picnic table and a barbecue grill. You only need to order the ingredients through the front office.
