The canals and their houseboats are so much a part of Amsterdam that spending some time around them is a must.

There are only 2,500 houseboats, the limit has been set at that figure, at permanent moorings and I was told that their average price is around Euro400,000.

They range from what are apparently converted boats to custom-built houseboats and many have small gardens or window-boxes to add some colour.
