SHOP ORGANIC + RIDE ON ROBOT CARS
Every third Saturday of every month, the lovely organic supermarket inside Masdar City (Organic Food and Cafe’) offers 20% discount on all products. Please note that despite the name, this branch only has a shop and not a cafe’.
This can also be a good chance to have a look at Masdar City, one of the most sustainable communities on the planet: did I mention that to get from the car park to the actual (pedestrian) city, you need to ride on the futuristic PRT (personal rapid transit) system, which is a computer-guided, driverless vehicle – aka a very cool ‘robot car’?
