The place is under development with big plans in the future. Must visit to learn about the self-sustaining concepts. The architecture, the design keeps oneself interested. Though places to see and eat are to be developed, can kill time on an evening experiencing the pod cars and the future.

It is really great to see what can be accomplished with just a little forward thinking. And thye have done it right. Talk about a glympse into the future and this place would always come to mind. No room to explain it all here. You should just Google it. You will be amazed

Be aware that it is under construction, that means that most of the city is actually just sand, but for a project of less than 10 years of existence, they have achieved incredible results. In Masdar you can see the interaction of traditions with the most advanced technology, serving as a window of how cities should evolve in a sustainable... More

The accomplishments by Masdar is impressive. Though the place is under construction, it is hard to ignore the future of U.A.E.

Good to show children what their future could be like (electric driverless cars). Upsetting that more of these initiatives have not already been more broadly implemented in the UAE as an alternative source of energy considering the benefits for mankind and the globe. In Hawaii most of the villas have their own solar panels. Really amazing project with an awesome... More

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

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.
