FOREIGNERS COMPLAINING in INDIA. HAMPI TOURISM TICKET RANT 인도 배낭여행 함피, 유적지 티켓끊고 억울했던 사연


My name is Jordi and this is Hyekyong and we are the Lifetime Travelmates We quit our jobs, sold everything and now we are travelling the world Now we are travelling in India, so, subscribe and hit the bell if you don’t wanna miss any episode. See you! Our day 2 in Hampi.
We arrived yesterday. And today we start with this “puri bhaji” This “puri” is huge! But it’s empty. “bhaji” and some sauce… chai tea… After some really nice breakfast, we are going to the temple But guess what: Hyekyong just forgot our raincover for our backpack. And I’m a bit pissed. And now we have to go back to the hostel.
Hyekyong: Oh it’s raining! See? Jesus! We never show you when we fight or when we are upset. Hey! Come on! ·”!·$%/& 😡😡😡😡 😩😩😩😩 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♂️ 🙉🙉🙉🙉 Hey! Shut up! See? She doesn’t take her responsibilities and I’m the guilty one. **** it! Lucky for us, it didn’t rain much so we could keep hiking along the ruins, the Tungabhadra river and the temples. We are going to Vijaya Vittala Temple And the surroundings are pretty nice. The river, they say you can cross it walking. But since it rained quite a lot recently you have to take the ferry. But if it rains too much, the ferry doesn’t go so you have to take a tuk tuk or whatever transportation and cross a bridge that we don’t know where it is yet but we are gonna find out. And we keep going! This is so surreal! I feel like I’m in a movie or something. We’ve been walking about 20-30 minutes
to this Vijaya Vittala Temple. The weather is nice! And not many people around! We are lucky that it’s low season and not many tourists. But we can guess…
here, in high season it gets really full. But as you see, we are almost the only ones around. It’s complaint time! I’m gonna explain you something. Yesterday we bought the ticket that gives you access to three of the sites here in Hampi We visited one of the sites, very happy, no problem, it was really good. In the afternoon we were coming here and on the way to Vijaya Vittala Temple it started raining and we couldn’t make it to this Vijaya Vittala Temple. So, we had to go back. it was not good. Even the road.
And we had to return the motorbike. So we didn’t visit this Vittalla Temple The thing is: the ticket is valid for one day. They don’t specify if it’s 24 hours or until evening, or if it’s until night. Or until the site’s closed. But the thing is we came to the ticket office
and we explained our situation. And we asked if we could explaining this… what happened: that it was raining, we couldn’t come. And they didn’t want to let us in. Insisting quite a lot They said that we have to pay the ticket again. It’s quite unfair, I thing Specially because foreigners, or tourists pay 600 rupees per person. And local pay only 40 rupees per person. A big difference. Which I totally understand, I mean, you make money with that but do you think it’s fair that if the ticket is valid for 1 day, and it’s not even 24 hours now letting you in because the previous day you could not. We don’t have access now to the place? I don’t know, we were even asking to talk with the head officer but the ticket counter people said that they are not responsible for that. We think it’s unfair and from this point I think I’m a bit disappointed with this Hampi Tourism. I don’t know, I wanna ask you: what do you think about this? Hyekyong’s softer ways And we ran into one of the tourist guide, he just finished and he was on his way out. And then he explained to us that he’s seen so many cases like us that the travellers didn’t know that the ticket was valid for only one day. And then they came on the other day asking to enter the other site that they didn’t finish the day before. So, if there are so many cases like this I think from the ticket office they have to remind the people buying tickets that the ticket is valid for only one day. I think it’s quite fair, if they inform in advance that the ticket is valid for one day. So, we decided not to enter the temple Because we don’t want to pay 600 rupees again. So we are just gonna walk around Or the tourist guide told us that if you just go uo the hill you can see the good view of the temple So, we are gonna do that. A little bit disappointing honestly. But…well, anyway. I’m still so pissed but, how can I make myself feel better? I mean it’s a shame that… Look at this! The view is still amazing! But I still feel so angry! I don’t know how to control this! 😘 Well, actually, yeah, it’s our fault Because we didn’t check the ticket well It said it’s valid just for one day. And then we didn’t look it up, the ticket well. So, next time: Remember! It’s valid for only one day! Alright? It’s our fault but still for 600 compared to 40, I think you guys could be a bit flexible and if we didn’t make it on the previous day not even 24 hours after, you could be flexible and let us in. Haha, still pissed like me!
No, I think it’s a bit unfair And people can be flexible, we don’t need to be like robots, right? Yes, that’s right. Listen to the people, we are not machines and robots. You can let us in, with the ticket that we bought less that 24 hours ago. Maybe. No? Or maybe a big poster saying that: “We won’t let you in, even if you cannot make it less than 24 hours before” That’s my rant. I don’t know. Ok, let’s I still love you.
I still like India…I’m just disappointed with HAMPI! Let’s get over with this and let’s enjoy the amazing view here. There’s a lot of goats on the rock. We are gonna continue back to hostel, no? Yeah, back to hostel, and get lunch. Dhal fry and South Indian Thali. And then climb up another hills around the hostel. Our anger didn’t last long. In the afternoon we went up to the Matanga Hill which is the highest point in the area with impressive views of the surroundings. It is a 30 minutes climb and it’s another perfect sunset spot. I’m drooling! Oh my god! Oh my god! I need to exercise! The views are so nice! See you up there!

  1. So, in the end it was kinda our fault not checking well, but still, they could be a bit more flexible!
    Anyway! We enjoyed that 2nd day in Hampi and we love to show you around!

  2. Haha couple fight lol XD – my gosh the wind is a killer that day lol… vroomz! ah so you came back again the next day.. better weather ish i guess today – lots of wild monkeys hey..does have the movie set kind of vibe right around 10:50 felt like some roman war movie set 😀 btw where is the music from ? love this kind of cinematic song? epidemic sound? Hye needs to exercise haha

  3. Thanks for the fantastic Video ..i visited India few years back i recall some of the places you show thanks

  4. Great nature walk, amazing temple and surroundings!
    sorry for the ticket problem! it looked quiet at that time, they should let you in.
    great sharing friends liked!

  5. Haha you are in a healthy relationship 👍😅😁 I am sorry about the ticket problem that sucks..But customers services from them. Anyway enjoy your travels no matter what! ✌🙂

  6. Hahahahahha guys when we travel we have the odd couples spat too hahahaha. Totally signs of a great relationship its communication 😀 Great video guys it felt like a nice slice of life.

  7. Oh wow you guys definitely have had some unfortunate events happen to you, always sucks. Hated hearing about the experience about buying a ticket and then not getting refund or anything when you couldn’t go in. I feel like the language barrier really is a huge challenge while traveling. Still looked like you saw some gorgeous spots atleast, sorry you guys are dealing with that! Keep enjoying the little victories! 😊

  8. This is very unfortunate. But hopefully, your story will help other travelers. That's why we always watch a bunch of Youtube videos before traveling to a destination.

  9. Groovy vibes !! Just subscribed ! Really dig your channel !! Dropped a like ! Really dig the cinematic clips 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  10. I think she is right, If it is written on the ticket then you can only blame yourselves. I got charged double when I went to the Elephant caves in Mumbai. Ricksaw fees are a whole other subject tho. Nice videos I wish I had done the same on my travels to india 👍🏾

    P.S if you go to the state of Maharashtra check out a hill station called Matheran. If you go north India look up Mcleod Ganj, and Manali.

  11. Hey guys love your production and b roll shots. India is a diverse and beautiful country. Tickets scams sorry and forgetting rain jackets…frustrating sometimes but in retrospect all part of the adventure! Cheers guys!

  12. Great Vlog guys. My wife and I have been life long travel mates for 23 years now! I've quit my job twice to travel for a year at a time, so really enjoy this channel. been to India twice too! Bummer about the 24 hour rule.

  13. Your breakfast looked DELICIOUS! LOL That look he gave you! Oh my. Reminds me of my husband! LOL Ah, what is travel without an argument or two? Usually with my husband and I it is about driving directions. 😉 What a beautiful place! Love all the monkeys!

  14. It's a shame they couldn't just bend the rules a little for your situation. I don't think it's really that big a deal and I agree they could be more flexible. It's a huge hike in price between the locals and tourists. We experienced the same thing when visiting Borobudur and Prambanan in Indonesia.

  15. ㅎ ㅎ 잼있네요. 언젠가 함피갈때 꼭 참고할께요.
    그리고 입고다니는 그 코끼리 바지는 인도에도 있나요?
