When it comes to travelling across the country or elsewhere, one thing you’re likely to do is to stay in a hotel. After all, booking a room at a hotel is easy thanks to the Internet, and you’ll have no trouble finding a great room that is well within your budget.
However, staying in a hotel isn’t necessarily the best way to experience certain holiday adventures. If you like to go exploring, particularly off the beaten track and away from the tourist traps, you’ll have a more immersive experience if you go camping instead.
If you’ve never been camping before, you might be wondering whether it’s the right thing for you to do. Take a look at these reasons why camping can be better than staying in a hotel:
1. You Can Stay In Remote Locations
Imagine if you want to stay at a picturesque location that offers some stunning views across an expanse of land and is relatively unspoilt by the world around you. It’s something you would love to do, yet it isn’t always possible if you want to stay in a hotel.
If you don’t want to stay somewhere nearby and prefer to be closer to your perfect yet non-existent accommodation location, the best thing to do is go camping instead of staying in a nearby hotel.
2. More To Camping Than Sleeping In A Tent
Some people assume that camping means staying in a tent that you have to spend ages putting up and hoping that it doesn’t fly away if there’s a gust of wind!
The truth is, camping is a general term that covers staying in a tent and other things like caravans, hybrid campers, campervans, and more.
3. Cheaper Than Staying In A Hotel
As you can imagine, staying in a hotel generally means spending a lot of money on accommodation – especially if you’re staying somewhere for several days or weeks.
If you go camping, you’ll save a lot of money compared with staying at a hotel. That’s especially true if you pitch up somewhere in a tent or have a caravan or campervan that you own.
The only thing you’d need to pay is any site pitch-up fees – and they don’t cost much money at all.
4. Making Memories
Whether you’re a solo traveller that likes road trips or someone that enjoys family holidays, one thing’s for sure: you’ll be making memories when you go camping.
You can take lots of photos and selfies at stunning locations and have magnificent backdrops, whereas if you stay at a hotel, you won’t really experience the same thing.
Camping experiences are very memorable, and it’s something you’ll want your children and their children to experience too.
5. No Noisy People Next Door
Another advantage camping has over staying in a hotel is that you don’t have any noisy neighbours behind a wall. You can pitch up your tent or caravan, or park your campervan wherever you want away from other people for some real peace and quiet.
