We went there with our kids. The self driven cars are amazing and have been the talk of the day. Great choices of food and a great organic shop there.

Very cool. Park and take the pilotless shuttle to the center of the University. at least 5 restaurants, I think, on the campus itself: Buffet, Good Mexican, Cafeteria, Sandwiches, plus at least three more good restaurants hidden about. Another fine restaurant at the Outlying Headquarters Building, half a kilometer SouthWest of the Main Building.

If you have been exposed to companies similar to Masdar in first world countries then this will not be too interesting for you. Its value comes from the fact it's top notch in the region; worth a visit.

The vision and potential for Masdar is huge. After living in the UAE for 6 years now, there still isn't much to do at Masdar to draw people in but once development moves on, I'm sure it will be one of the places to visit in Abu Dhabi in the coming years.

Masdar city, is really clean and nice, a little bit of a different architectural style than what you are used to because of its unique design, But that is where it stops, yes, technically and environmentally awesome achievement, but i think its being over rated as a sight to see.

Actually it looks like no progress has been made over the last 5 years. The buildings are interesting, as concept is impressive, hope it will find its glory in few years time. Pity there are no guided tours, as some scientific or engineering explanations would really add to the experience. The highlight is clearly the transportation system. There are few... More

This is the start of something amazing. I feel everyone must visit but it's not finished yet so not much to see. It currently has the driverless cars which are very impressive and the ideas are very innovative such as the climate control seating areas and terracotta buildings. Something to deffo to watch out for.

Worked here for a year and have to say I didn't have very good first impression. But gradually more and more shops are established and the "city" started to form. From thereon, this place is turning better each day. The wind tower is one thing I don't find impressive. I enjoyed the stone and water flow arrangement throughout the mini-city... More

A great place with a great cause. "The place" for all green people. The outlets and activities still need to be more diversified. The private driverless wagons are the best up-to-date vehicles that aim to save our planet from harmful emissions.A must-visit place :)
