The town of Hampi is not to be missed on your trip to India. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the whole city is based around the ruins from the Vijayanagara Empire. The majority of the ruins are free to visit and wander in and around with the exception of a couple. If you go to the Vittala Temple, which is one of the most stunning of the ruins within the region based on its stunning stone carvings, then it is advised you go to the Lotus Temple on the same day with the same ticket. Go on different days and you will end up paying more.
Depending on the number of days that you have here and your ability to deal with the heat, you can either opt to hire a tuk tuk for the day and they will drive you around to each of the sights you want to see for a fixed price, or you can take your time and walk. The walk from the main centre to the Vittala Temple along the river is quite a stunning walk and if you want to do any walking, then that is the best temple to walk to. You can get maps of the ruins from one of the locals for a cheap price and this can help you plan where you want to go.
Accommodations in Hampi are on both sides of the river. To get back and forth if your Hampi hostel is on the opposite side to the ruins, boats go continuously throughout the day from around 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., but become unreliable after about 3 p.m. Most accommodations have restaurants to get food if your Hampi hostel doesn't offer food, or they should be able to point you in the direction of a good, cheap meal.
