Take a ride in a self driving car!

This is a very interesting place to visit. We ate at Jim's Kitchen Table which was very good and then found our way downstairs to the self driving cars.

If you are a Environmental freak, then this is the place for you. Everything here is run on Renewable sources of energy. There is a natural cooling tower and smart transportation throughout the entire city.

Made a quick stop here on a tight schedule so I was only able to wander around a bit on my own. Would have liked to take a ride in a driverless car and hear about the vision and technology in use. Did get to see and experience the wind tower, which IS really keeping a courtyard at a bearable... More

We visited this development out of a south African perspective where renewable energy is increasingly becoming popular. I was a bit despondent with the lack of tourist welcoming and assistance. We had to ask the security staff on where is what and what to see and look at. This can be improved. The driver less cars, ample coffee and eatery... More

This is the much hyped environmentally friendly "city" which is supposedly energy efficient and with a low carbon footprint. It is also home to a huge Siemens HQ. Miles from anywhere, my main gripe would be the amount of dust and sand everywhere, as it is still pretty much one huge building site.

This site visit was part of a business trip, to see one of the world's first eco-cities. The first part included a trip in a driverless pod-car, which felt strange, but was interesting too. A tour round the facility took in the design of the buildings and a look at the many solar panels. For countries where there's plenty of... More

Masdar City attracted me with its driverless electric car and the echo friendly buildings.... Good initiative by Abu Dhabi Government and its name has recognized globally with its initiatives and projects internally and internationally. It has research facilities and its own University with many internationally recognized courses which is good for the new generation

Experience a ride in a driverless car. See how a giant tower cools the air in a public square/courtyard. Unusual designs for buildings to make them greener. Discover it all here

Exceptionally difficult place to find anything in. I have heard that there are wonderful restaurants and shops there, but I've never been able to find them, or for that manner to find a way to get inside! Most bizarre.
