Have you ever gone ‘glamping’? This is short for ‘glamorous camping’. Instead of camping in a cramped uncomfortable tent and sleeping rough on the ground, glamping is a more luxurious form of camping. It uses large tents or huts that contain comfortable beds and lavish furnishings. Some even have bathrooms attached! If you hate camping but don’t want to stay in a posh hotel, it offers the best of both worlds.

OK, the best of both worlds. So, we need two worlds, and then the best things from them?!
Yes, actually, quite like that. The best of both worlds means the benefits of two different situations enjoyed at the same time.
Let’s look at a few examples of how we can use this phrase naturally:
- I loved the weather in my old home in Thailand, but I missed the social services of my homeland, the UK. My new home, France, offers the best of both worlds. The weather is fantastic, and so are the social services.
- If you want the glamour of a sports car but the prices of a small car, the Phord Incredible is the best option for you. It offers the best of both worlds.
- ePhones have many apps, but they cost a lot. Ambroid phones are cheaper but have fewer apps. I’m looking for something with the best of both worlds.
