Sometimes all I want to do is to get away to a beautiful place and do nothing. Be in my own thoughts, relax and enjoy the beauty of the nature.

This trip to Hampi was the best trip so far for me. It was a random plan to take off to Hampi on a Friday night. So we booked our tickets from Bangalore to Hospet. Reached Hospet early in the morning and took an auto to the river. To go to otherwise of the river we took a boat which costed us INR 10.
 
We had booked the rooms with Shanthi resort so we directly headed to the resort. Shanthi resort is one of the best in town. The view from the resort was breathtaking. We stayed at Hampi for the weekend and all we did was to chill. Wake up in the morning to some nice coffee and watch the sunrise and sunset. Long conversation in the restaurant and going for a swim is what I can sum up from this trip.
 
If you are looking for a chilled out weekend getaway where you do nothing, hippie island is the place to be.

Hampi India has so much history behind it. I have yet to visit this place but when I do it won't be to laze around on this hippie island. It will be to visit its ancient ruins that are now a part of UNESCO's world heritage site.

Why would anyone want to go to Hampi, Karnataka just to laze around? The place is so full of ancient attractions that it seems like a sheer waste to just sit and idle away one's time.

Beautiful place Hampi, India. I had an amazing time there. I just hired a motorbike and went exploring this old town. Five days here and I fell in love with the place.

Nice post but maybe a bit more on why this place or river in Hampi is known as hippie island? I'm sure many non-visitors to this place like me will love to know the story or reason behind the name.

I have a trip to Karnataka planned this coming December and Hampi is one of the must-visit on my list. I hope two days here will be enough to cover most of the places of interest.
