I am not sure what I expected from this place but it did nothing for me.I can appreciate the environment issues but there was no atmosphere and not much to see.we parked at ground level so did not experience the futuristic cars that bring you from the underground parking. From what I gather this is the highlight for most people.... More

I am very disappointed of this place. This is masdar city and should be the place of the future? This place has huge potential but today there is nothing to see except the automatic vehicles. I would not advice you to go there as tourist.

We went there with kids but had nothing much to do except for the solar driven auto car which takes you around no other activity ....not worth going.

If you want to have a look at how the future will look like, go to masdar city. The architecture is amazing, and the vision they have is undelievable. Park your car and take a ride on an electrical car. It is still not fully ready to welcome tourists, but definetly worth the trip.

We were captivated by this site, and it started with the PRT (Personal Rapid Transit...4 passenger cars running with software and magnets) and included the solar blocks and wind towers. We looked at every inch open to us and were amazed at what has been built and what will be built.I will be following its construction from afar and often.... More

My sister in law is a student at Masdar, hence I had the chance to visit it with a very knowledgeable tour guide that has A LOT to say about every corner and curve. Every single facility has a story behind it, a quite interesting story. Main attractions to see, I would vote for: the library, the dorms, the wind... More

The Emiratis are using their oil money to exercise and learn from green initiatives in this near-off-grid oasis. The technologies being employed keep the place comfortable and well-lighted. A pretty large community on the edge of Abu Dhabi, Masdar City does community outreach and advocacy for low carbon footprint and low fossil fuel living. This reviewer sees major flaws and... More

World's first ZERO carbon city. Whats there not to visit. U can arrive by car, public bus (AED4 one way) and then hop on to electric train to take you around Masdar. Can be confusing the first time, when I drove there. I felt the signage wasnt adequate.

When visiting Abu Dhabi, MASDAR is worth the stopover. Building layout and construction material characteristics are interesting, the wind tower is a modern replica of the Middle-East old times smart cooling invention. The transportation from car park to main living area is done with automatic electrical cars, a fancy and funny way to approach the place. And for those willing... More
