Yes, instead of “Camping” it’s “Glamping”,
and now the traditional backpacking trend is being replaced with “Flashpacking”.
The same principals apply, it’s traveling on a budget,
but without skimping on comfort or style!
No longer does a budget mean living on two-minute noodles in a dark, damp, lice-infested hell-hole.
If you do your research, you’ll find many hostels have undergone huge make-overs in order to impress!
Melbourne is spot on in this travel trend, with places like Nomads offering glammed up hostel accommodation!
And remember a beautiful view is often free of charge!
