Why you should go: So you can’t quite afford the Four Seasons Tented Camp in Thailand. This 22-hectare spot is secluded and swanky: accommodations include a Mongolian-style yurt and four-star chalets with wood stoves. Restaurant staff will whip up a gourmet pizza or vegan nosh while you lounge oceanside in a Japanese cedar hot tub. Oh, yeah, you’re totally camping.
The Gear If you’re a fetal sleeper and the thought of a rectangular bag horrifies you, Nemo Equipment’s Spoon Shape Sleeping Bags have got your back, er, side. You’ll have no trouble curling up in this design, which is wider at the elbows and knees so you can roll over, but still tapered at the head and feet to keep you toasty. From US$229, nemoequipment.com
