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 :)

We didnt know what to expect in this visit to Masdar city but we were surprisingly astonished and it was a great place to visit for my children since they are learning a lot in school about recycling and sustainability. I suggest that you inform yourself on the website of Masdar City prior to visiting so that you can appreciate... More

I went here with my 25yr old grandson , he was born in abu dhabi so he knows his way around, the railcar system works great, it is all about saving power and using to the best advantage what resources you have .. Area cooling is controlled by large towers with open tops so no matter which direction the wind... More

Amazing collection of architecture to show the world that zero carbon design can work. Very clever design elements and the use of electric people movers was fantastic.

The Future is Here, Witness the ZERO Carbon masterpiece of Abu Dhabi. Masdar is a sustainable mixed-use development designed to be very friendly to pedestrians and cyclists. Anyone can go and have a look at the City and also you will get a chance to ride a PRT (Personal Rapid Transit), which will take you to the Apartments and the... More

This place was built with techies in mind. There are driverless cars that transport you throughout the area. It also has a university with student housing. A nice mix of restaurants and stores.

I'm glad I took this stop on the Big Bus Tour because I was intrigued from the beginning about the concept of a carbon-less city. It's more a satellite college campus than a city. There are incredible structures here. And the driver-less Personal Rapid Transit vehicles are awesome, but at this point, are only meant for people who park in... More
