Camping is an excellent way to really appreciate the outdoors and experience all the scenic beauty on offer. Many people choose camping to get away from urban living and from the tedious routine of everyday life. The thought of escaping cities for wide stretching natural landscapes and open skies can seem irresistible and it is easy to see why. It is fun, affordable and a complete change of pace; a vacation that stands out from others.
Whether with friends, family or a solo trip, camping is an excellent choice. Where to go and what to do is completely flexible and up to you. It can be as leisurely or as active as you like and you have complete freedom when choosing a holiday. Choose mountains, forests or lakes. If you like the waves, you can choose warm coastal regions brimming with beaches, whether this is Cornwall or Spain.
In recent years, camping has enjoyed somewhat of a revival and now comes with a touch of sophistication. It no longer indicates sitting in a field eating wet sandwiches but rather hints at worldwide adventure. It is a way to discover new places and to really feel a part of the place that you are visiting, from interacting with the locals to sampling traditional cuisine.
Many countries provide excellent camping grounds and facilities and are conveniently cost-effective for those on a budget. Beyond the well known holidaying spots of the UK, France and Italy, Eastern Europe is an excellent choice. Countries such as Romania and Hungary are backpacker friendly as well as quiet and unspoiled and they offer great value for money.
You could consider travelling further afield for unforgettable exotic camping experiences. Try Indonesia for extravagant tents complete with wooden floors and air conditioning, or Thailand for tents furnished with hand crafted furniture and first-rate services. For luxury in the wilderness, camp in one of the numerous African safari parks where you will find top rate accommodation amongst stunning scenery and animals in their natural habitat.

Just a boat ride away from Britain but a world away in experiences it is the perfect holiday destination. Investigate Eurocamp Le Ruisseau Holiday Park offers to book the perfect park for your camping holiday.
