Southeast Asia’s leading tour operator Exotic Voyages has listed Lak Tented Camp in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak among “five gorgeous glamping sites for an unforgettable getaway.”
Nestled on a small hill surrounded by the tranquil Lak Lake, the campsite offers 15 safari-style tents, four luxury lakeside bungalows, a dorm, and a restaurant in a wooden longhouse.
The campsite is only accessible by boat.
“Lak Tented Camp is a sustainable and beautiful place to stay if you want to get closer to nature. Come here for picturesque scenery, vibrant culture and a chance to experience local life,” travel experts of Exotic Voyages said.
Each tent can accommodate up to two guests, at VND850,000 (US$34.20) per person.
Glamping, or luxury camping, has become a global trend though only recently gaining popularity in Vietnam.
In contrast to the austerity or simplicity of traditional camping, glamping refers to picnics in the suburbs where travelers can rest in large and fancy tents fully equipped with high-class gear.
Four other glamping destinations in Southeast Asia recommended were Rosewood Luang Prabang in Laos, Shinta Mani Wild in Cambodia, Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle and 9 Hornbills Tented Camp, both in Thailand.
