I recently spent the night in a Singaporean park while glamping. The weather in the city-state was tropical, which contributed to the discomfort of the situation. If I had carried a cooler and used a mosquito coil, my trip could have been more enjoyable. I first went glamping in the middle of July. Although I had great expectations, my destination—a campsite in eastern Singapore—turned out to be an unpleasant experience because it was hot and muggy, the tent was less luxurious than I’d anticipated, and it was located in the center of a crowded park.
Even though part of this was beyond my control, there were a few things I could have done to improve the situation.
