1. Punakha (Bhutan)

Bhutan, known for its calm and tranquility, is also known as the “Land of Thunder Dragons” because visitors can experience mother nature in all of her most beautiful and pristine forms. Due to the breathtaking surroundings and enchanting landscapes, camping in Bhutan is an amazing experience. However, Punaka in particular is stunning since it enables camping along the Mo Chhu River’s beaches.

Camping on the golden beach and wavy river with a hammock will make your experience genuinely memorable and a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the summer when you do not need proper shelter. Additionally, you’ll enjoy meeting the locals and taking part in an exciting journey as you come to know Bhutan.

The Philippines is a wonderful place to travel. It is the ideal location for travellers to embark on a camping experience because mother nature has so much to offer and there is a great deal of tranquility in its beauty.

You’ll see a ton of wildlife while camping in this amazing place, which will make your expedition very special. Animals of every kind, amazing beaches, and a variety of woodlands are all around you to make your camping trip truly breathtaking.

3. Trizara Resorts (Indonesia)

Trizara Resorts encourages guests to unplug from technology and get in touch with nature, and whether you’re traveling alone, with a partner, or with a group, they provide a variety of activities to help you do so.

There’s nothing like meeting new people while you’re traveling, and team sports are some of the finest ways to do so. Play futsal, go paintballing, engage in an archery duel, or practice yoga for relaxation. If you’re an adrenaline enthusiast, try the bungee trampoline, flying fox, or high ropes course. For some midday entertainment, try the Amazing Race or Treasure Hunt.

4.  The Canopi (Bintan)

If you enjoy participating in water sports, the Canopi is a great place for you. On the water tricycle, you can go slowly while strengthening your muscles, try to scale obstacles in the water as in Wipeout, or aim for the stars in the Jetovator!

The Water Experience includes activities like kayaking, parasailing, and more to keep kids entertained. If you wish to relax on dry land, try your hand at the shooting range or go on an off-road adventure in a UTV or an ATV in the exclusive forest of Treasure Bay Bintan.

5. Doi Chiang Dao (Thailand)

Thailand is a tropical country with a lot to offer in terms of culture, art, ecology, and breathtaking scenery. Doi Chang Dao should be at the top of your list if you’re searching for the ideal campsite in Thailand.

This amazing environment is home to numerous rare bird species, making Pha Daeng National Park in Northern Thailand a well-known destination for bird viewing. As you camp through this exceptional area, though, you’ll also come across thousands of other species, like Humes Pheasants, Giant Nuthatches, and many others.

6. Phnom Kulen (Cambodia)

While camping in Cambodia under the stars is a pretty wonderful experience, being in Phnom Kulen, one of Cambodia’s most well-known National Parks, is something else entirely. Camping amidst historical ruins, a forest, and the sounds of rushing river is undoubtedly an excursion you don’t want to miss if you’re seeking for an unforgettable experience.

The name Phnom Kulen, which means “Mountain of Lychees,” comes from the Valley of a Thousand Lingas and its breathtaking waterfalls. The national park in question ought to be at the top of your list if you’re looking for camping spots in Asia.

7. Genting (Malaysia)

You can forget that Kuala Lumpur even exists if you aren’t too far from the city. Have a holiday at Genting, where you can find tents that are cozy and provide amenities that no other tent does! The indoor amenities are somewhat less than those at the other locations mentioned above, but the surrounding natural beauty and the cold climate more than makeup for it.


While there are countless camping destinations across Asia, the following seven locations stand out for their natural beauty, diverse wildlife, and opportunities for adventure. From the beaches of Thailand to the mountains of Nepal, these destinations offer something for everyone.

So whether you’re looking to relax in a beautiful setting or explore new terrain, be sure to add these destinations to your camping list.
