My experience camping in Singapore !
I had booked a couples tent with go glamping for my husband pre birthday celebrations. It was on a sunday because they were fully booked prior to it, so a tip is to please plan early and book early. My husband loves outdoor activities and whenever we have been to East Coast Park, sitting beside the sea enjoying the breeze, we had have has a good time.

We reached to the camping site, which was informed to us on that day earlier via a whatsapp, and loved what we saw. Our permit was attached to the outside of the tent and the tent was beautifully decorated. It was 5M in size and had different types of lights which looked beautiful. There is also a lock to the tent so we need’nt worry about our things etc.
We went swimming in the waters which was a perfect temperature. The swimming location was 3-4 mins away from the camping location. There were shower and changing rooms available and we freshened up after a quick swim. Most of the evening post that was spent sitting on the super comfortable beach chairs, listening to old songs, playing guitar and de stressing in the wonderful cool sea breeze. The sun set looked amazing and it was not hot atall.
The best thing about going glamping is , you spend so much time outside, and without much activities to do that you talk, and you talk to your heart’s content. That’s what we did, we have a heartfelt conversations, discussing about various things of our lives and it was simply lovely.
There are a lot dining options available, however they were around 1.5 KM away from the camping location. We loved the walk and we enjoyed observing the different people have a stroll or a fun time in the East Coast park. The place was filled with happy people, some exercising, some roller skating, some walking with their children and somechildren learning to ride a bicycle. While coming back after dinner, we rented the motobikes and then cycled around the East Coast Park for 30 minutes.
We wanted to enjoy more of the sea breeze for some more time before heading off to sleep in the tent. We enjoyed the night view of the sea and the sky and felt so relaxed. There were flights continuously taking off and landing and it was fun to watch. Around 11:00 PM we went to sleep in the tent. It was cool and airy, thanks to the fans. It also had charging points available. The bed was comfy and slept like a log. However I heard my husband was a little uncomfortable on the air bed.
We saw the sunrise at around 6:54 PM, packed our over-night bags and left for our home around 8 as we had office that day.
