Guests can sign on a touch screen guestbook and will receive their creations/artworks through e-mail. Note/Tip: 1. Takes around 30 minutes from Abu... More

If you want to experience something inspiring this is the best place to go. But because they are still constructing, you can feel that you are on a construction site. There are not a lot to visit though, maybe in few years it will be better.

The ideal time for visiting the complex of Masdar City is during the Open Days, held once or twice a year. In addition to enjoy the special modern architecture of the several buildings, in that day also a small "suk" is presented for recent technologies or sustainable environment practices, as recycling and renewable energy. It is a great opportunity for... More

We did visit the Masdar city after seeing it on a french channel and did not expect seeing such a discovery in Abu Dhabi. Congratulations to the Emiratis for that.

It is one of the must see places in AD and used state of the art technology in using the renewable energy. you should try their PRT( personal rapid transit) system to understand how fast solar energy driving technology is grappling with.

I like that they are working on a "Green" city. There are some great restaurants and shops here for those seeking organic and gluten free food.

Everytime we hve got visitors, we will bring them to experience the 'Driver-less' (PRT) There are few restaurants & coffee shop inside this building. One of my favorite is Sumo. But currently the place is under a big renovation so parking is a bit painful.
