See Hampi if you can and a day trip to Mysore will be worthwhile.

If shopping is your forte ... Forum Mall and Bangalore central are the places. Do get a book called city guide, packed with loads of local information will keep you busy for the 12 days that you are there.

Mysore, Coorg, Kabini and neighbouring areas (Medikeri etc) should be an ideal choice with limited travel and lots of relaxation.

You also have a good variety in terms of Heritage (Mysore), Plantation (Coorg), Hills (Medikeri), Wildlife (Kabini) covered here.
