Plan your basic circuit and pick & choose the various sites on the move.
If you are not carrying a guide book or a Hampi site map, buy one when you reach the ruins site. You can get a simple map (covering the popular) sites for about Rs20. The map sellers do approach you as you land at the Hampi bus stand or aa you start doing the sightseeing. As the shops sell maps are located around the Hampi Bazaar area, buy one from here as the far areas are devoid of any such shops.
