10 year old Zara Khanna describes herself as a traveller and a coder. She’s also the founder of a travel chatbot for kids called Octa.

Octa is an extremely helpful bot that helps families plan fun trips with their kids. It tells you about attractions, play areas and cool events in major cities. You can also find the location, timings and tickets through Octa.

Bonus? It tells you jokes on those long plane, car or train rides to keep boredom at bay.

Octa’s site features a monthly spotlight city and also has the link to Zara’s travel blog. Don’t be deceived by her age. She’s already been to 44 countries and 66 cities!
