Do you know Hampi ranked 2nd New York Times’s must-see global destinations!
Recently, I visited to Hampi which was the Vijayanagar Empire in the 16th century and one of the richest cities in the world. Hampi has more than 1000 of well preserved stone monuments. This includes various temples, palaces and forts.
From my visit, I would like to suggest must things to do in Hampi.
1. Stay in Hippie Island:
This very place is also considered as Goa without the beaches. If you backpacking to Hampi, Hippie Island should be your ideal place to stay. To reach Hippie island you need to take a boat, which costs you 50 rupees and takes 5 min to reach there. There are various options for stay as lot of cafes provide shacks for relaxing.
2. Coracle ride:
Coracle ride is must thing to do in Hampi. It is one of the unique things to experience in the ancient city. Coracle is a round shaped boat made of wickerwork that can accommodate around 8 people. These boats are there since the time of Vijayanagara Empire. So, do not miss the ride!
