Houseboats anchored at the Kumarakom backwaters in Kerala.

Traditionally, the houseboats were used as grain barges to transport the rice harvested alongside the backwaters; thatched roofs provided shelter to the contents of the barge and the boatmen.

While they were also used by royalty as living quarters, it wasn't until much later that someone hit upon the idea of using them as a tourist attraction. :-)
