Natural Glamping Lau Fau Shan — Yuen Long
Located in Lau Fau Shan in the northernwestern New Territories, Natural Glamping offers tents with a bohemian chic vibe for groups of two to four. While the accommodation and on-site activities are fairly basic (trampoline and sand pit for the little ones), the tents are well-maintained and each come with their own bathroom. One of the biggest draws of this luxury camping site is the proximity to wholesome activities for the family like Lok Yau Yau Strawberry Farm, T. Park, Happy Fish Farm, and Ha Pak Nai Beach. A BBQ package with food and tools can be purchased as an extra, guests can bring their own food and rent the grill for HK$150, or cook in the shared kitchen.

To live out your carefree hobbit on the meadows of Middle-earth fantasy, Galaxy Garden has bubble tents with transparent ceilings to enjoy stargazing or watching the rain. Arguably our favourite glamping location in Hong Kong, ‘Bubble home’ is more accurate, because the larger tents actually have a living room that connects to the bedroom. The whole campsite is a pretty sight at night, when the bubbles light up from the inside and cast a warm glow. Enjoy light-up swings, kiddie pools, and grill a communal dinner late into the night (BBQ rental HK$200 per person). Towel rentals, parking, cake-freezing, and other add-ons have an extra fee tacked on.

Not fancy teepees or safari tents, but the ‘luxurious’ part about these ordinary 4 and 6 person tents at Treasure Island Beach Club is that you don’t need to carry any gear or spend time wrestling with tent pegs – they set everything up for you. They’ll provide the bedrolls, BBQ, lamps and you can rent sleeping bags. For a more comfortable stay, opt for one of the beachfront cabana rooms where you can sleep on an actual bed, with air conditioning and en suite shower room. Located on beautiful Pui O beach, amid Lantau’s wetlands, you can relax and enjoy the natural environment (and almost certainly see some buffalo).

Tents and caravans are fully equipped with bedding, there are shared toilet and shower facilities, as well as BBQs are available.
