One of the biggest trends in travel is coming up with new ways to experience the outdoors without sacrificing comfort. Though yurts date back thousands of years and were invented by the nomadic groups of Central Asia, they are experiencing a revival due to the popularity of glamping. A yurt is a round structure often with a cone-shaped ceiling. Inside, they are surprisingly homey, and many have kitchens and running water. Yurts have spread far beyond their origins in Central Asia and are now found as vacation rentals around the world. If you are looking for a new experience for your next trip, check out the most wish listed Airbnb yurts around the world to book.

The future of travel in an ancient structure

Though yurts were originally designed as a portable dwelling for nomadic people, today they serve as a unique accommodation for a different kind of nomad. Well-seasoned travelers have probably stayed in every kind of hotel, vacation rental, and villa imaginable. Renting out a yurt for your next trip is a great way to stay in comfort in the middle of nature and inject new life into your travel plans.
