■ AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: The famous canals of Amsterdam are littered with houseboats in all shapes and sizes. Some are for rent but most are occupied by locals who’ve made a home for themselves on the water. Staying in one of these was top of my list of things to experience whilst in Amsterdam, so I opted for the priciest AirBnb houseboat I could find. A hotel room in this city is not cheap anyway so I figured it’d be worth it to pay a little extra to get the full riverboat experience.
So what does the houseboat look like inside? Is it as spacious and comfortable as a hotel room in the same price range or a normal house? Can you swim in the rivers? And last but not least, what is in my suitcase when I travel? After the houseboat tour I unpack everything.
If you wish to rent the same house boat for your Amsterdam trip search for Houseboat-Apartment Sumatra. It is available through a number of different hotel booking sites.
