Visit an eco-city in development at Masdar City. Designed by the esteemed British architectural firm Foster and Partners, the city runs solely on solar energy and other renewable sources. Walk through the streets and admire the postmodern architecture of the growing project, and relish the coolness and openness of a city lacking the usual forms of transportation. To get around a little faster, take a trip on the personal rapid transit system, a network of driverless cars that scoot around this futuristic place, taking you where you want to go.
