New Delhi, April 21 (IANS) Are you jotting down vacation ideas for the summer? Well, this time try staying at camps instead of a hotel as they are more affordable and promise a unique experience, say experts.
Chirag Gupta, Co-founder and CEO, Deyor Camps, and Devanshu Khandelwal, Co-founder and CEO, Wheelify, list reasons why you can opt for camps over hotels.
* Affordable: Any hotel below three stars can turn out to be an awful experience, and often payments exclude meals. Meanwhile, camps offer come at a cheap, affordable price.
Hotels might have their own way of making you feel entertained, but camps have a simple, unique charm about them that can’t be replicated by a hotel, no matter how expensive it may be.
* More freedom: A sense of decorum needs to be maintained in hotels. As much as you would like to release the inner primate inside you, doing so in a hotel is ill-advised. At a campsite, however, things are simpler in nature. The areas are not closed off by walls or restricted areas — you can lose yourself for hours just walking around and taking in the sights.
There is a sense of openness in camping, and the sheer scope of activities you can take part in is enormous.
* Number of recreational activities: From trekking to adventure sports to starting a bonfire, the amount of activities while camping is huge, and will certainly keep the average person busy and entertained.
An open mind and an inclination to try out new, adventurous things are two very important qualities that one must have in order to maximise their camping experience and satisfaction.
* Unique experience: There is nothing new or exciting about staying in a hotel. On the other hand, exploration and wonderment are some of the key features of camping that elevate it to another level.
