As alert level eases allowing for more outdoor activities, several glamping sites near Metro Manila are opening their doors to visitors anew for a modern twist on camping experience.

Camp Sandugo’s biggest tent, fully equipped with a stove, a portalet, a porch, beds, a mini-fridge, a mini air conditioner, breakfast for four and snacks is priced at P6, 000.
Budget glamping tents for two with free bonfires priced at P1,900 and day tours for mountain bikers and trail runners are also available.
Located an hour away from Metro Manila, Windfarm Nature Escape also offers glamping tents and rustic-themed houses for people interested in watching the afternoon sunsets or climbing hiking trails leading to mountain waterfalls.
“This is a family camping site, especially for children,” owner Jade Acidre said.
