    Floating vegetable market is the great attraction for tourist but I also found it amazing when I see floating shops at Dal Lake. During my last visit to Kashmir, I had a boat safari in Dal Lake who take us through the floating market from where we bought shole and other kashmiri garmets. It was great experience must say.
