It all started with the very famous Goa, then came down to Pondicherry and out of no where one of my friends suggested Hampi and all of us agreed right away. The plan was for two days. As my parents had stayed in Hospet (13kms from Hampi) for quite sometime I was pretty familiar with the whereabouts.
We opted for budget travelling and as it was a long weekend we didn't have a lot of options for the buses or trains. With whatever little available we booked the bus tickets to Hospet from Bangalore in KSRTC Suhas, a semi-luxury bus. We opted Shanbagh Internationl . They are one of the oldest hotels in the city (you will realise it as soon as you enter). We had reserved a room on triple sharing basis with no pre-booking charges & complimentary breakfast. Mind you it's nothing like one of those fancy hotels you might have stayed but it has got all the bare minimum facilities at a bargain.
