Exploring Masdar City

Masdar City Abu Dhabi is a low-carbon low-waste emerging development that aims to be one of the world’s most sustainable cities. It serves as a test-bed for cutting-edge development in clean and sustainable technology.

What makes it special? The entire city operates through renewable energy!

Also, it has installed the Middle East’s first rapid charging station as part of its ongoing efforts to promote sustainable transportation.

Upon arrival, you park your car at the car park then you hop into one of these PRT (Personal Rapid Transport) to go to your destination.

A taste of cars of the future!

Snug and cozy!

Discovering the wonders of this spiral stairs…

Dinner at Sumo Sushi & Bento – ”the freshest quality Japanese food at the most affordable prices.”

”We know what our guests want and we know how to deliver it.”

On this particular night, it took a thousand years for the food to be served.

Seeing how hungry the bears were while waiting, we were given complimentary salad! Hooray for that, all is forgiven.

Bento meals arrive!

Exploiting the dark and quiet night…

This was my favorite part, the virtual guestbook! You sign with your fingers and it automatically generates art from the letters of your name.

Then they send you a copy of your art through email.

This was mine!

Much of the city is still under development but walking around and seeing how people invest time, money and energy in trying to build communities that help in saving the environment makes you proud of the accomplishments and excited for the future.

Masdar City is open to the general public seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 10.00 p.m. Click photo below to visit their website.

  1. Oooh, edamame! This post made me hungry and it’s hours before the next meal. 😦
    On the city: Open only at certain times, why is that? Don’t people live and work there?
