About the Miniature City for Children to Play like AdultsKidZania is a small and colorful kid city, with banks, airports, offices, garages, hospitals, restaurants, dentists and even a burning building that needs to be put out fast.
This is a very educational place, where kids between the ages of 4-15 can act like adults. They can practice having a regular job. When kids "work" in KidZania, they receive a sort of payment for their work, and they can use this money to purchase things they want around the city, save up for school, and learn how to manage their own earnings.
KidZania is locating in the Siam Shopping Center in the city center. The way the city is structure, children learn about how to handle finances. They can try working different jobs, earn money, and of course decide what to do with that money. In each station children are given direction and proper dress for each job, and only then do then begin "working." Children can choose to be pilots, doctors, ambulance drivers, construction workers, magicians, firefighters, news reporters, chefs, milkmen, and more.
There are even perks for certain jobs. Because the chefs roll the sushi or make hamburgers in the fast food restaurant, they get to eat there as well. The money earned, the kids can spend as they like, at the KidZania souvenir shop or at the beauty salon. Many of the children choose to put their money in a special bank and save it.
Parents cannot enter the complex with the kids. They can spend time at the cafe with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake in the lobby, and watch their kids play through the windows.
