I love to travel with the Mini-Car-With-No-Driver from the parking lot to the right heart of Masdar City, and surely love the reward of delicious Sumo Sushi Bento inside ;)

If you're in Abu Dhabi and miss Mexican food, go to Barbacoa (it is located in Masdar City). It is comparable to Chipotle. Also, Masdar City is cool to walk around (they have cars that drive themselves).

A step in the future... after reaching the car parking, you will take an electric and automatic shuttle to reach the main entrance. Its pleasant to walk in the city. Great architecture.

I toured Masdar City as part of a larger day trip to Abu Dhabi. Physically, there's little in the way to see here, Masdar City is more concept at this current time. There's a model of what the city will look like and some neat designs that make the city cooler than the surrounding area without the need for air-con.... More

The driver-less E-car ride was really fun haha I felt like I was in a futuristic film setting. The architecture is unique and it was nice to see their wind tower, pretty amazing!

This is worth the time to explore the master planned city that's in the works. It truly was 10-15 degrees cooler in this area. The construction and plan they have to develop this area is truly remarkable for this desert area.
