Glamping in Korea

The post title pretty much says it all, I finally went glamping and it was in Korea. Josh and I (emphasis on Josh) are into the outdoors and when we are home in California we love to go camping. We enjoy both car camping and hike in camping, although if you ask my dad he will tell you that camping is only when you have to carry all your stuff on your back for miles. Regardless, I enjoy sitting by a fire at night eating junk food followed by sleeping in a tent.

After our brief time having fun riding in a tank at a Korean army base (see all about it here) Josh, Eunji, her brother and I headed off to some glamping! Luckily for us the place we chose was nearby and the owner picked us up from the army base. The location was really pretty, near some mountains and pretty remote.

Most of the tents, there were about 5-6 tents on each side.

Outside each of the tents was a seating area that came complete with a table, some grills, cooking pots and utensils. For an extra fee the people who run the glamping establishment will provide you with wood to light the grill or even propane for a burner (in case you want to make some ramen).

There is a small store on the premises that sells beer and various snacks. Luckily for us, Eunji had packed up all the trapping to make for a delicious Korean bbq dinner!

But, just in case you happen to forget to bring any food to cook up, don’t worry you can always make some pizza!

It was about ₩10,000 per pizza (less than $10) and they gave you all the toppings to add onto the pre-made dough. The pizzas are then cooked in a folding “camping oven.”

The inside of the tents are really large…could fit upwards of 6ish people. I’m not entirely sure. But our tent had two small couches that folded down into mattresses. The mattresses came with electric heating blankets on them so we were nice and cozy the whole night.

All in all, glamping was amazing! The food was delicious, and it was much more comfortable than the sleeping situation had we been actually camping. My favorite part had to be the delicious Korean bbq feast we had!

Yay for glamping!

We love glamping!
