It is said that spending night in houseboats is a wonderful experience. The splashing of water, with hopping and swapping of frogs, and a lovely moon shining bright in the sky makes the stay truly amazing. It can’t be described in words.

But the question is: What exactly are these houseboats?

Haven’t you seen a Shikara? Houseboats are very similar to Shikara in appearance. However, they are much larger in size. These are boats that float within water but in a static position. Although, there are some regions in this world where houseboats slowly move within a certain water boundary, but that’s a rare scenario. In most of the circumstances, they can be seen standing at one single position. These boats are basically not for sailing purpose. Rather, they are used for lodging. Yes, they can well be described as floating accommodation facilities. The interior of these boats are wonderfully decorated and well furnished. At the outset, there are proper balancing devices that help in retaining their balance within the water and hold them properly.

houseboat hire options are quite popular within Asiatic countries like India and Pakistan. In fact, there are places within India like Kashmir, Kerala, and Shimla where the presence of these boats can be seen in tandem. Yes, they are the most popular lodging options in these places. Houseboat rates are obviously much expensive, when compared to normal hotel charges but one should have experience of at least once in a life. Houseboats at Dal Lake, Kashmir are quite popular among tourists.

Outside Asia, these floating accommodation facilities can be seen within Berlin, Florida, Seattle, Murray, Venice, and lots of other places. Murray River boats are normally non-static in character and floats at a lethargic pace within a certain boundary region.
