The Best Glamping Sites In Hong Kong
Find yourself returning to the same attractions and places week after week? If you think Hong Kong is just a dynamic concrete jungle for you to explore its shopping, dining and nightlife scenes, you may need to think again. The natural wonders of the city are just as fascinating, and you haven’t seen the best of Hong Kong until you have explored the great outdoors through hiking, trying exciting water sports, and of course, camping.
Aside from appreciating the beauty of nature, camping also offers a perfect opportunity to get away from it all and spend some quality time with your loved ones, or even a little "me time". From stargazing domes to unique transparent bubble tents and luxury caravan camping, we’ve compiled a list of the best, most beautiful glamping sites for you to enjoy the outdoors in style, without having to sacrifice creature comforts. Forget tins of baked beans around the fire—camping these days is a much more glamourous affair.
Relatively new on the local glamping scene, Park Nature is a peaceful oasis that boasts the beauty of Yuen Long’s natural landscape and stylish caravans, where you can forget the busyness of life and reconnect with nature without having to sacrifice creature comforts. From the Morroco-themed caravan to the modern minimalist option, each type of accommodation offered here has its own appeal, but it’s the deluxe stargazing caravan that steals the show, which features beautiful wooden interiors, comfortable beddings, showers and a large window that allows guests to sleep beneath the stars for a magical experience.
The site is also located very close to the Kai Kung Leng hiking trail, Nam Sang Wai and Hong Kong Wetland Park, offering outdoor enthusiasts plenty of opportunities to enjoy the beautiful outdoors around during their stay. If you’re feeling peckish after a day of exploring, there’s a private barbeque area where you can cook up a feast on the grill. Alternatively, you can treat yourself to a hearty Thai meal at their very own restaurant, Thai Cow.
