I have a number of tents, one super light weight oneperson tent for backpacking 
over seas, a large dome for car camping that is suitable for extreme cold 
conditions but my favourite these days is a dirt cheap mozzie dome I bought 
with a seperate fly.  I feel this offers the best protection from bugs and 
creepy crawlies which at the same time allows me to admire the stars at night, 
is easy to set up and most important is cool in tropical conditions. 

To my mind a swag is only good if there are no bugs about or it is very cold.   
A tent offers you the flexibility to either sleep with just a sheet or a 
sleeping bag depending on the temperature and humidity.  A lot of the deluxe 
tents (eg macpac etc) are brilliant if you are heading above the snow line but 
dont have sufficient ventilation for the tropics.
