There are few countries that have legal regulations around the world regarding glamping tourism, which is the new trend of recent years. Greece is one of the leading countries that made some regulations regarding glamping and enacted it. Within the scope of the research, it is aimed to determine the similarities and differences by comparing the legal regulation related to glamping by the Greek Ministry of Tourism and the "Regulation on Qualifications of Luxury Tent Facilities", which was put into effect by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in Turkey. For this purpose, the legal regulation on glamping prepared and put into effect by the Greek Ministry of Tourism and the “Regulation on the Qualifications of Luxury Tent Facilities” were examined in depth and some suggestions were presented.
