A lesson learned...

We went as a group for a team building/professional development day. There were many things that we learned from visiting here which was very eye opening.

This was the most boring part of the hop on hop off tour. The area is under construction and not much of a wonder to see but very good concept.

I was with a tour group, and most of us had never heard of Masdar City. Eventually is will house 50,000 residents and is the most advanced "green" city in the world. Impressive architecture, design, you name it. Beautiful and lots of great photos. Glad our group convinced the tour guide to take us here. One of the high points... More

I went in the afternoon after visiting the shooting range nearby. It's summer in Abu Dhabi and the Masdar city space had a pretty much deserted feel. Uniquely designed buildings, guess it might have a sustainability reasoning. There are plenty of location maps around but none tell about the driver-less car point (at least i did not find it intuitive).... More

Off island, Masdar city will become the green city, there isn't much there currently however there are a few restaurants which are all very nice, Jim's kitchen, sumo sushi, melius, plus others. The main point of going is the electric car. It's something which would be in Logan's run (film from the 70's about the future). Visit it and welcome... More

We visited masdar city with our kids (11 and 7) and they loved learning about all the alternative sources of energy. Their favorite was riding in the electrical cars with no drivers and standing under the wind tunnel. Do check out the city's website before your visit, they have a PDF with information about all the different things to see... More
