I visited Hampi twice, but sometime back. Hence this blog is for you folks who do not know a thing about the place and its existence. I wont be able to talk more about hotels n travel n much guidance but a tale that etched my heart with warmth and sunshine. No doubt this is a land of kings and kingdom - lost kingdom and its vigour.
Its a small place and a day or two is enough to see the whole of Hampi. If you are traveling from Bangalore, the best way to travel is to take a local train as this would be much less tiring than driving down.
I suggest you to stay in hippi island. Thats the other half of Hampi. So, hampi has two distinct halves of cultural space. The first half where the ruins lie and the other where you will find shacks, paddy fields, small hills . So , for a stay choose the island. Cause you can eat , party n be merry here and take a scooty in rent to drive to the other part to witness the ruins.
