Dubai

CNNGo is all about luxury as it paves the way to the golden city of Dubai. It's a city that mixes gravity defying space-age skyscrapers with a rich heritage. Filmmaker Abdullah al Kaabi kicks off our trip skydiving over the iconic Palm Jumeirah Island and introduces us to the indigenous Arabian oryx at the United Arab Emirate's only national park. Next, Simone Heng, a Virgin Radio host, treats us to a cocktail at At.Mosphere Bar on top of the world's tallest building. Then we get to wander through the Gold Souk as jewelry designer and photographer, Nadine Kanso shows us an older side of the city. Once we've worked up an appetite, Samantha Wood, owner of Foodiva.net, gives us a taste at one of the world's top restaurants, Le Petit Maison. But she also makes sure we get to see where the locals like to chow down on locally caught seafood at Bu Qtair. Finally, we wrap up our trip with the band Juliana Down to show us that no city is complete without a great soundtrack.
