    Located on the outskirts of Hyderabad, about 20 kilometres away from its centre, is the Ramoji Film City. It is known as the biggest integrated film centre in the world. This is the place to be to understand the process and the props used in film making. It is comparable to the Universal Studios, built on an Indian theme, of course. But you can also find sets depicting different places in the world here. Children mostly enjoy the in-house amusement park here, which has a few rides to keep them busy for a while. And if you're lucky, you might be able to spot celebrities shooting here, as the centre/studio accommodates up to 150 film sets per month!

It has the same elements as above but instead of a non air-conditioned bus, you are taken around by a mini air-conditioned bus. It's a guided tour as well and you are taken around the different sets in the film city, with some sets approachable as well. After the guided tour, you can opt to use your complimentary tickets for the amusement park. By lunch time, a buffet would be served for guests, where you can enjoy North Indian, South Indian and Chinese dishes. Next would be the shows, which are also featured in the above package, the difference is that, you're allowed to jump queues because of your type of ticket.
