Taste luxury, wild-style

Do you love the great outdoors?

Do you long to feel the grass at your feet and the wind in your hair?

Do you want to get in touch with nature yet still sit in the lap of luxury?

True to its roots, the Metro Adventure Club wants to take our readers out on an adventure of its own making.

We realise that many have felt an increased desire to get out of the confined city spaces of the Klang Valley and revel in the country's greatest natural resource, our countryside.

But we understand that for most city folk, the idea of heading out into the wild blue yonder may be a bit daunting. So in the spirit of the "slowly, softly" approach, we, along with Coleman, will organise a two-day-one-night "glamping" this August.

Glamping is a term derived from the two words - glamourous and camping.

It is also referred to as "glam camping", "lux camping", "luxury camping" and many other similar phrases.

Regardless of the specific terminology, the idea is the same.

Glamping brings the world of luxury into nature in the most seamless way possible.

Come this August, you will be able to enjoy camping a night under the stars without giving up familiar conveniences.

The event will be held at Chengal Resort in Janda Baik, Pahang.

The event will have many fun activities, which will both entertain and educate you on the wonders of the great outdoors.

Not to mention, we will pull out all the stops to make sure that catering for the event will be top-notch!

Details and cost of the event will be revealed at a later date.
