Day 3: we went to Ramoji film city which is 50 kms away from city, so only private vehicle can go or hire a taxi for going it.
Ramoji Film CityI booked Ramoji Star Experience package through website looking at the climatic conditions. It was very hot outside and exploring such a big studio will drain my energy and I had to save it to visit close by places in the evening.After eating some light breakfast with some fresh juice, I left hotel at 6:30 am to catch shuttle at 7:10 am from Gachibowli circle. Empty road with limited traffic it took just 15 mins for me to reach the stop. After travelling in bus for 2 hrs finally I reached film city around 9:30 am.Received souvenir chocolate box during check in at premium lounge.
Ramoji Film City is built over 1666 acres of land and is the largest integrated film city in India. It is a popular tourist place in Hyderabad and shows up on almost every tourists’ checklist, visiting Hyderabad. It is properly constructed and beautified and the process of getting in very seamless and systematic. They have a ticket counter on the very entrance and once you get the tickets, they show you two different ways to enter. The prices of the passes are Rs. 1100/- and Rs. 2100/- respectively. The major difference between the two are the privileges that come along with the second one. You are provided with a full AC coach for film city tour, lunch at one of the buffet restaurants, some freebies, a free adventurous activity and many more. (they have a range to choose from, we chose zip-lining). If you go for the Rs. 1100 pass, there would be cute little red buses to take you around for the tour, from the main film city centre.
