Enchanting Hampi

In guidebooks, Hampi is always one of the top places you should see in India. Located in the northern part of Karnataka, this seductive place is filled with temples, bazaars, ruins, lakes, and rice fields that give backpackers a great excuse for taking a week or two off their busy schedule. What makes it different from other places in India is that it’s laid back and doesn’t have this extreme vibe that you always see on places like Agra and Jaipur. A perfect way to go around in Hampi is by bike, motorcycle or even just by walking around. The views are breathtaking so you might want to bring your camera with you.
