Hi all,

This forum has been a lifesaver for all my trips to India. I am glad it is still going strong.

This year in the first week of August I am thinking of spending 4 - 5 days in Hampi. I will have my two children with me - age 10 and 6.

Q1: I have been reading that best way to get around and explore Hampi is on bicycles - my younger child does not ride yet, but are bicycles with child seats available for rent? Are there other ways of exploring? Auto rickshaw for example?

Q2: My children are adventurous, we go on many hikes and walks. But wondering if Hampi will be age appropriate - they don't need kid things in anyway, but just wondering if the exploration and guides are geared more towards adults.

Q3: I want to minimize driving between major cities - Is is better to fly into Bangalore and take a car to Hampi or Fly from Hyderabad to Vidyanagar and then drive? Any other options that minimize driving time?

Q4: What should I expect in terms of weather in August?

Q5: Clean, comfortable places to stay. I have been hearing a lot about Evolve and also some glamor tents (can't remember the name of that company), but are there any nice mid range places to stay? These seem very luxury - I am not sure if we need luxury but I do want comfortable with good food and clean bathrooms.

Take a train from Bangalore to Hospet. Book the tickets as soon as the booking window opens 120 days prior to travel date.

There are quite a few places which will meet your requirement for staying. See Lakshmi Heritage Tourist Home, Shanthi Guest House, Hotel Mayura Bhuvaneshwari Kamalapur etc.
