Glamping Vs Camping


Read through the following text and look up any vocabulary you are not sure about before answering the questions.

Glamping is a relatively new activity and its name comes from the word “glam” meaning posh and “camping”. Basically, it is camping without the need to actually buy any equipment. You still sleep in tents (although often very high-quality tents), but you don’t have to worry about putting the tent up or bringing all the other bits of equipment needed for a camping trip. It is a great option for first-time campers who want to experience camping without spending a fortune on equipment, not to mention the time it saves not having to set everything up.
