Mumbai (Bombay)

Kidzania is predictably one of Mumbai's kid-tastic attractions, an educational activity centre where kids can learn all about piloting a plane, fighting fires, policing and get stuck into lots of art- and craft-making. It’s on the outskirts on the city, 10km northeast of the Bandra Kurla Complex.
