More than seven thousand people use this post office every year and it's still going strong! 

Avinash Yadav: Dal Lake is pride of Srinagar. It is having floating post office. It also has floating market. It offers nice view of sunset. Mornings are awesome with birds chirping around. Have fun. If you ever go to Srinagar which is also a great place, so must visit Dal Lake.

Pritam Basu stayed at the Welcome Hotel: Over all experience has been good.. Located by the Dal Lake and all rooms had view of the Dal Lake. 

Have you ever sent mail from a floating post office

Prem Anand: Far from the hustle bustle of city if you want a peaceful but luxurious stay then Poovar Island Resort is the place. While my Kerala trip, I stayed at floating cottage of resort for 2 days and believe me it was an awesome experience. They have a ground pick up point from where they pick guest in their boat to this beautiful island and on the way you may get a chance to watch lots of different species of birds. You can have a beautiful sunset view from inside the cottage floating on backwater of ocean subsidiary.

3. Levitating stone of Shivapur

Shivapur, a small town near Pune, is home to a levitating stone that is believed to be lifted up in the air by the spirit of Sufi Saint Qamar Ali. The interesting fact about the stone is , if 11 people touch their finger to the stone and shout the name “Qamar Ali Darvesh”, the stone flies up in the air. This is a huge stone weighting around 200kg.

Shikha Singh stayed at the Fort Jadhavgadh Hotel: Very well-preserved palace cum fort of the Jadhavrao dynasty. The staff makes you feel totally royal with their extravagant welcome ceremony. Different secret pathways and dungeons open to tourists. Swimming pool on the terrace adorned with good seating arrangements. They even organise pretty good treasure hunt activities for groups which makes you explore the entire fort independently. Complete with a museum, preserving the historical artifacts of the dynasty and a guide to give the details of it all. 

Is the legend of the levitating stones freaky or fantastic? 

4. Floating rocks of Ram Setu, Rameshwaram

According to Ramayana, Lord Rama walked to Lanka on the floating bridge commonly known as Ram Setu. 

Hirender Gupta stayed at The Dalwik Hotel: Good location. Clean rooms and lobby. Food was good with a wide variety of food. Staff is friendly and helpful. The beds are large and comfortable with clean linen. Would recommend it for all staying in Rameshwaram. We went with family for Rameshwaram trip.

 If you don't believe this, check out the floating rocks found in the Hanuman Temple of Rameshwaram and be mind blown!

Libbin Mathaichen stayed at the Emerald Prestine Island: Great place to get lost. A piece of island in between the lake amazing experience, rooms are all floated in water at affordable price. Just 18 km from kochi. And they have activities like paddle boating, kayaking, indoor games. And they also have day out package and residential conference with conference boat.

Feel like floating on emerald waters?

A Majumdar: Loktak lake is a very large lake and important resource for hydroelectricity as well as vegetables. The beauty of the lake is its vastness and floating gardens. The nearby Keibul Lamjao National Park is an important spot. Here the rare Sangai Deer is available. One can enjoy boating in the lake.

Pallab Ghosh: I stayed at The Classic Hotel (Imphal) from 20 to 22 October, 2015. This hotel is located at a nice place with wide roads and the markets are also close. Kangla is very close to it. I was told that it is the only 3-star hotel in Manipur. All the staff speak fluent English. The service was punctual and the response was fast. I liked the buffet breakfast, which started at 6:30 am. The room (Classic Deluxe) was good, the DTH service had all the channels accessible, room service was excellent and there was hardly any power cut. They have an arrangement for tours also. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at this hotel and I recommend it to other travellers.
