Since the launch of “Hassle-free camping” at YHA Ngong Ping SG Davis Youth Hostel in Feb 2015, we have been receiving overwhelming responses from young people, couples as well as families to meet us on Lantau Island for a lovely countryside getaway, with our tent equipment and beddings ready before you arrive.
This time, we are escalating this brand-new camping experience to Vol 2.0 – by introducing the global “Glamping” trend to Hong Kong!
What is Glamping?
Glamping, a word for a new kind of travel, is defined as glamorous camping. Originated mainly from the continents of Africa and Australia, it has developed rapidly in recent years and has been spread across the world. Types of luxury camping sites range from tents, wooden houses and treehouses to Mongolian GERs, camping cars and a lot more. With such endless variety of options, glamping is definitely a trend that can appeal to almost all types of travelers.
YHA Ngong Ping hostel – the Bohemian-style bell tent
To let nature lovers get a taste of GLAMPING, we are launching a new bell tent at our YHA Ngong Ping hostel on Lantau Island. Currently in the latest European fashion, this bell tent is 4-5 times larger than ordinary tents, with a maximum capacity of 10 people.
Its plain linen colour makes it look like a mini circus tent in bohemian style. Campers may also bring along their own DIY decorations such as bunting flags and string lights to blend in some original style to the tent.
As the tent is made of canvas, one of its biggest advantages is the resistance to humid and sticky weather. This therefore makes it suitable for all four seasons.

Pillows & beddings all ready!
Inside the large bell tent, you will find basic set ups of pillows, blankets and beddings, sleeping pads, tent lighting and tea tables all ready by us. Campers can also have fun preparing their own meals in the hostel kitchen (fridge provided) and take a nice hot shower in the hostel bathroom before falling into sweet dreams.
Make Your Own Breakfast!
What is better than starting your day with a great breakfast? Add HK$30 for a DIY breakfast! Waking up in the next morning, you can enjoy the time preparing DIY breakfast with your beloved ones, with our freshly food ingredients provided. Choose either a Hong Kong-style or western-style breakfast.
Fun add-on: Barbecue dinner under the starry sky
A delicious barbecue feast is always the perfect match with outdoor camping. Limited quota, first come first served.
Beverages, instant noodles and canned foods are also available at our reception.
Admiring the natural treasures
As the hostel is situated in a perfect spot in Ngong Ping, guests can easily reach attractions like the Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, Wisdom Path and Ngong Ping Village in 5-10 minutes where they can immerse themselves in the midst of Chinese flair.
The hostel is also close to various fascinating hiking trails such as the famous Lantau Trail and Nei Lak Shan Country Trail. If you are up for the challenge, screw up your courage to conquer the 934-metre Lantau Peak for the unbeatable sunrise at hilltop!
